No glory. No hallelujah.

Mine eyes have seen
the horrors and destruction
of earth's wars
Years of progress and esteem
have been ignored like
rusty swords
There're a few who earn a lot
of money helping many die
Those few keep high and dry!

Kill and maim and blow to pieces
Kill and maim and blow to pieces
Kill and maim and blow to pieces
Look mom we've a new bomb.

In your face poetry, but very honest write...

Yes, Dear Randall,

In the end, there is no glory. All that remains of war are blades of steel and fingers, stained with the precious blood of life, which can never be washed clean.

Love & Light,
Reviewed by E T Waldron 6/5/2006
I detest war, and think if people who clain to love ever really tried it the world would benefit from it. Having said that I do agree with JJ too. If we can't get along amongst ourselves how can we ever have peace... Well written piece...

Reviewed by Susan de Vegter 6/5/2006
JJ has said a mouthful. I blame the media for not reporting the good as much as the bad. There IS more good in this world and the shame of it all is that NEWS has to be negative in order to get attention. Now there's a real problem as well as the warriors who are fodder for bigger dreams.
