Islamic extremists,

IRA terrorists,

Jihad warriors,

CIA, FBI, NSA & Secret Service operatives…


No matter the name,

No matter the cause,

No matter the belief,

They are all the same,

To kill US will give none of them pause…




Iraq one,

Iraq two,

Always we are in the thick,

Our world is run by dicks…


Face it,

Its inevitable,

Till end comes,

Might as well,

Sit home & knit…


Nothing we do,

No one we elect,

The world will end,

In eventual nuclear storm,

A burned out sphere in space,

Our world will therein transform…

It just might be a whimper.

Powerful write! I try to be optimistic, BUT even I'm beginning to think that "nuclear storm" is not far away. Watched a "History Channel" program on the "Little Ice Age" which ended with a possible scenario on what might happen if the world is ravaged by Global Warming followed by an Ice Age... when "food & water" are short, not just fuel... everybody may get savage
You write a lot of stuff!

Biblically speaking, when they (man) say 'Peace and safety!' then sudden destruction comes upon them (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
In other words, man is by nature a hunter and warrior destined to be continually in conflict. First it started with hunting and fighting for family survival, then for the community progressing to nation survival. It's a stark, unpleasant fact of life that while the West's economic survival is dependant in part on resources coming from particularly hostile areas of the world, it's obliged to protect these resources militarily or otherwise. Wish it were different.

A million guns in toyshops, boys playing war in the sandbox in kindergarten, miles of killings explosions and destruction on TV, it's almost normal, I said almost, dog eat dog, is really a misnomer en grande. This is a profound and skillfully written poem my friend!

Face it,
Its inevitable

I sadly believe it is, Bro; but will it be by God's hand, or man's?

But not the thoughts one should have on their 378th Birthday! Go out and enjoy yourself today, and give Rufie Boy a hug for me.

It is a sad legacy we and generations before us have supported and continue to support but...
I tend to, even if I may have my head in the clouds still hope that maybe one day someone will come along and find the answers before it is too late. For as long as little children are still coming into a world being loved there is still a chance.

Those that forget history are condemned to repeat it. Let us not forget. An excellent write of a sad situation.

Try to think happier thoughts: tomorrow's your birthday! Make it a good one, know we love ya.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
