once upon a time


What answers lie in wars?
What justice do we seek?
For whom can we repay the folly of rape and mayhem?
Mankind's humanity destroyed.
What answers lie in wars?

When wars bestiality is performed
Do we applaud the dogs of government?
Can we excuse the inexcusable by indifference?
How can war be justified by humanity
It wreaks havoc on the lives of families
Yet still we have not learnt that war is hell
Tell me your reasons if you condone war

Please tell me what answers lie in wars,
That word lie and more lies by liars,
seem to me to be the hidden motive for wars.
What answers lie in war? Tell me please
When the last post sounds across the mound of caskets
buried deep in the ground can you then say
' yes I believe in war.
