    Blood on Draft Files, Baltimore, 1967

    For Dave Eberhardt

    The so-red-blood did its job: soldier-blood,
    student-blood, verily, the blood of Jesus.

    In reality, you poured duck-blood on the files
    in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

    (enough for the powers to take notice and act).

    An event from another era, a generation ago,
    a crime for which you served 2 years in jail;

    Phil Berrigan, a Josephite priest doing God's work,
    received six years in jail for his "misbehavior"

    (the powers had seen, and they had reacted).

    I recall how in a poem you roasted quail on a jail
    radiator; now, you work with inmates downtown.

    Would I have had the courage to get blood on my hands?
    At Christmas, we get together with you and Cathy, enjoy

    salmon, a bloodless fish. You are aged sixty-nine.
    (In the year of your crime, 9,353 GI's died).

    Christopher T. George

    May 24, 1968: Four men who protested the Vietnam War--
    Josephite priest the Rev. Philip Berrigan, Tom Lewis,
    James Mengel and poet David Eberhardt--were
    sentenced to jail for pouring blood on draft records.
    See The Baltimore Four for more information.
