“War”

 

Over the lost and restless,

Have a thousand souls been lost.

All have died by a pointless cost,

None of the deaths have been painless

 

I am stuck here in this alien place,

All of my friends are either lost or dead.

I try to hide from the firing above my head,

I trip in fear, but realize it is only my shoe lace.

 

All around me, bodies lay flat,

Fear overwhelms me as I run past.

Anger builds inside me fast,

As I see a friend spread out like a bat.

 

Let the war end, I say!

Before my anger goes beyond the top!

They refuse; enough trouble to mop,

But as long as anger is here, the war will stay…
