THE POISONS OF RIGHT AND LEFT for Czeslaw Milosz By Les Murray

You are what you have got

and: to love, you have to hate.

Two ideas that have killed and maimed

holocausts and myriads.

Les Murray is the author of numerous books, including "Subhuman Redneck Poems," "Fredy Neptune: A Novel in Verse" and, most recently, "Learning Human: Selected Poems."
