War

 

 

Man

forced to fight

for an empire

with a thirst for death

 

Take the world

they said

it would be shared

between man and tyrant

they said

 

Choose not to kill

and the family of man

would be taken as sacrifice

for the wrongful deed

of treason of pacifism

 

Across the border

man pledges

to protect his land

and family

from the tyrant

and his army

 

For without his hand

the enemy

would take his life

and freedom

 

Man must fight

for without a battle

home of man will be lost

 

Choose not to kill

and the family of man

would be killed

for the mistake

of pacifism


Both man and man

must kill to survive

 

However one must die

for the other to live

 

Therefore man must die

for man to live

 

Tyrant desires power

 

Man wants peace

 

In order for power

tyrant must rule

 

For tyrant to rule

man must kill

 

In turn for peace

man must kill

 

Without death

there can be no life

 

...But what if there could be?
