Bloodlines - VE Day 2010

Sixty five years ago
And very few lessons learned
From that Victory in Europe
So painfully earned;
No swords into ploughshares,
Few signs of any will,
To learn to live in peace
Rather than war and kill.

And all around the world
Is still used the ploy
Of the name of one God
To pillage and destroy.
Perhaps our vicious species
Has that peculiar distinction
Of an in built need
For slow self extinction.
