Ever wonder why there is always a "war" being waged somewhere on planet Earth? Follow the money trail for an explanation.

Dedicated to my young nephew, Tony McGovern, who sees daily combat in NE Afghanistan under the watchful shadow of Tora Bora...





AM fog surrounds

Peaceful vale nestled down

Birdsong greets the dawn


Spin the globe around

Other worlds where strife abounds

Soldiers in harm's way


Warring politics

Inhumanity of Greed

Orchestrated hell


When will people learn

Just Neanderthals preach war

Wise Ones co-exist

Yes, because there is always one who insists on absolute power, sad but true. If only we could all live in accord.

"Orchestrated hell" says much to me about the underbelly of real manipulative power in this world that we never see but always experience. A new strength is emerging in your insights. peace to you, and continued inspiration ... richard

i wonder about it all the time, Carolyn,
the agendas of the arms dealers and the politicians,
the real purpose is always the money, always,
and there's money in resources and in conflicts.
Again to Tony, be well, chin up and stay safe.
