into the fountains of blood

as war spills,

endless drops of

what was once whole

while once vibrant families

are severed



into splashes of tears

yet no one ever wishes

hard enough

for it to end,

the masses oooooo!! and ahhhhh!

at the sadness of it all,

butt then bend to their leaders will.



Centuries of war

have blighted this planet,

while those who could

have stopped it sought glory,

and those who couldn't

allowed them the fodder


of their own fathers, sons,

and now daughters

God save us from ourselves.
