4 On War and Thoughts of Love

(Apropos Peace on Earth and Good Will: Advent Again)

 

                            1.

In the name of peace, wars are fought;

from the children life is released—

death wins all that it has sought:

the blood of youth satisfying the beast.

 

                             2.

Wars are being fought in the name of peace.

For the dying children, there is no release.

All are victims in this oxy-moronic game;

the winner and loser are both the same

 

                                     3.

Wars are being fought in the name of peace;

the victims—the parents of the children who are deceased.

Where is the justice in man’s inhumanity to man?

How long can we just sit around and not take a warring stand?

 

                                     4.

Love stopped by yesterday just to say hello.

For a brief moment it appeared she would stay.

But alas, it became evident that she would soon go.

Yet I shall forever cherish that day she took time to pass my way.

Outstanding capture sir! Pain demonstrates longevity in this wicked society but every once in a while love slips through the half opened window like a breezy night during the storm season, feels so good, but will soon leave after the storm has devastated everything in its path.. I'm grateful for that brief moment as well..
