So That We Build

In a great silence I hear the approaching rain:
There is a sound of conflict in the sky.
The frightened lizard darts behind a stone.
First is the wind, now is the wild assault.

I wish this world would sink and drown again,
So that we build another Noah's ark
And send another little dove to find
what we have lost in floods of misery.

(Martin Carter in Conversations, 1961)
