Sunday Poem: Laurence Binyon – O World, be Nobler

Laurence Binyon. b. 1869
  
O World, be Nobler
  
O WORLD, be nobler, for her sake!
  If she but knew thee what thou art,
What wrongs are borne, what deeds are done
In thee, beneath thy daily sun,
  Know’st thou not that her tender heart          5
For pain and very shame would break?
O World, be nobler, for her sake!
