Hitler, man of peace
Lenin freed the common man
Stalin sent by god

Without war, they rule
killing their own for cleansing
without death, they reign

Is war ever just
invite a Russian Christian
seek a German Jew

Questions rule my heart
Answers are fading shadows
All sand shifts with time

Senryu is a three-line Japanese poem, often, but not always ironic or satirical in nature, similar in structure to a haiku.

I hope the Satire is clear.

utterly brilliant - poignant piece "Is war ever just invite a Russian Christian seek a German Jew" - this line in particular ... profound beginning to an intellectual pursuit - words inspire new thought.

Yes what an unusual and dynamic presentation
of ideas that are always festering inside me. A dislike to hear names from the past, but an intense desrie to follow your lead. bill Hugs

I like this. Nice senryu.
Those questions come to mind every now and then. Sometimes the answer to it is so complex that I begin to wonder if it's meant to be rhetoric.

Much enjoyed,
