guys this poem was written 20 years before World War II was even a thing. Sandburg was trying to make a statement about the durability of war.

kasi, the "dreamer" is a word that is used as a symbol for future military leaders...so I also agree with jhomer95. Because Sandburg wrote this at the beginning of WWI...one of the military leaders was von Bismark.
