Title: war 1 ~ humans nil
Post by: Halo on April 26, 2018, 05:26 AM


I let the day go
the moment slide
to say in the eleventh hour
how much I despise war
hate the loss
of men and boys
whose blood and bones
fall on foreign soil

it’s always foreign

someone else’s fight

mothers beat their breasts
wives and children sob
watching flagged coffins
lowered into
cold
dank holes

what solace there?


Anzac day in Australia, yesterday the 25th April.

Wars are created by those that never fight and just reap the harvest of money it creates for them
at the expense of human suffering and death.  I feel your pain Halo.

So true Weave, and I doubt we've seen the last of war. :(

A perfect way to try to describe what is the most gut-wrenching of human frailties.  War.
i feel you deep down in my soul.  Thank you halo.  You speak for many.
