The situation in Zimbabwe, Nigeria and other parts of the world clearly shows that humanity is going through hell in the hands of unrepentant leadership. I am provoked to subject the general feeling that wagging war to rescure people and countries from unnecessary tyrany and outragous despotism is negative. I require an alternative that will not deliver the patriots into the bloody hands of the tyrant just after a roundtable dialogue that may be very risky and ellusive to schedule.

Dry injustice looms large

Prowling the lives of men

Ransacking the very breath

That makes men human

 

Cameras beap low

Leaving off the criminals

But sneaking into the pants

To cut off freedom from patriots

 

Criminals live large

Walking the corridors of power unrepentant

Seizing and welding the power

That the people own indeed

 

The air flys dry and low

But green and watery indeed

In the hearts of the few

That dry up the lives of many

In a commonwealth

 

And I wonder and ponder aloud

If war is indeed an option

For I better die fighting for freedom

Than die in the chains of a fellow mortal.

Is War an option?

WOW, LOVELY POEM. WITH STRONG WORDS AND MESSAGE. IN MY EYES WAR IS NEVER AN OPTION, TOO MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE DIE. THEN AFTERWARDS YOUR LEFT WITH MORE PROBLEMS, UNREST, HOMELESSNESS, POVERTY, BROKEN FAMILIES ETC. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK. I'M NEW TO AUTHORS DEN AND MY DEN WILL BE COMPLETE OVER THE COMING WEEKS. CHECK IT OUT SOMETIME.
ONE LOVE MOUNT ZINAI

War could be an option but the not the best one. It is sometimes called a necessary evil which should be carried out only when it is absolutely necessary. But in the case of sister Zimbabwe war is not an option. It will be the killing of a nation, sort of Somalia, if Zimbabwe goes to war with itself. Well done
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 6/16/2008
Strong words, yet war is an option. It is an option that should be reserved for the very last, when all else has been tried and failed. It should never be used as a tool of power, as all humanity is at stake because of it....

Be always safe,
Karen
