Hero of a Thousand Faces
"There comes a time when every man feels the urge to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats."
- H.L. Mencken
It's farewell to the drawing-room's civilized cry,
The professor's sensible whereto and why,
The frock-coated diplomat's social aplomb,
Now matters are settled with gas and with bomb.
- W. H. Auden, "On the Frontier" (1938)
