My Interpretation on the middle east conflict.

Ripples Of The Rich

How did she cope and survive a normal day
nobody should have to see their love go away
half the bed empty where he used to lay
sheets perfect and waiting for that special day
only if the war goes his way
and they kill innocent people and do what they say
as soldiers of the thrashing tongues
politics the body, soldiers the lungs
but without lungs politics could not live
should the soldiers stop and try to forgive
those who killed his family tree, relieve
their emotions that cast them across oceans
for the reason of politics and vengence
the rich cause more than crashes to the economy
families lost for a company, controversy
is the reason why his life is at risk face it
theyre rich but scared so they make armies
to act as their gun when they try to make you un
derstand why your husband is leaving, before his son
can meet him. its for your country so powerful already
oil isnt steady thats the real reason be ready they might
come to you next dont be vexed let your boy go fight
afterall you would die for your country day or night

Beautiful work, very strong message,
"politics the body, soldiers the lungs" is one of the best metaphors I've seen in a while. And the meaning in "why your husband is leaving, before his son" is tremendous. Brilliant title as well. This poem is amazing, excellent work. :)

I really like this, it has a great, powerful message. I felt the emotion from it as well, because it's so realistic.
My favourite line though was, "when they try to make you understand why your husband is leaving, before his son
can meet him"
Great job on this.!
