War: a #poem

Is it greed;
a hunger for power;
hatred for humankind
and for every living being?
How is war ever an answer to anything?
How can war answer the questions of food security, and health, and happiness, and shelter for all the creatures on this planet?

Tanks trundle down blameless streets;
merciless feet march ever onward
trampling the fruit of other men’s labor;
the blood flows rich red, quenching nobody’s thirst;
war changes everything – everybody loses – and still…
yet another president reaches for the bugle

  1. Very powerful true feelings.
    Yet , I wonder?
    War for defence has to be fought.
    War for justice may be inevitable at some inflection points in history.
    War for survival?
    War for civilisation mission?
    War for good men’s burden?
    Oh, no never
