Theme: War

War within a War

A War within a war
A war on sand, a war on land
A war so far, a war on a star,
Detonating, deafening, deadening
Defending, destructing, defying Death;
War on Terror, war by error?
War for the spoils, war for the Oil?
War on the Young, war by the Young,
Hopeless, groundless, timeless war;
A war by the armed, on the unarmed
A War by the strong, on the weak throng

A War by Dress
A War of Stress
A War of Mess by the Thoughtless;
War against Fire
War to spend. War to an end?
War against Age
War by Rage
A War on a stage
A War in a cage
A War of words
A War with swords

Why God made War?
What Man is warring in or warring out?
Laying hiding, killing mines,
Building and crushing walls and bridges,
Filling moats or filling ditches,
I have heard cries of Enchained spirits
Bodies writhing torn, raped, illicit,
No More War is the call, Peace is the Vision
No More Destroying, desecrating, devastating
A War within a War
senseless, fenceless, meaningless,
Time to End Deifying War.
