Merciless Are The warmongers.!

War seems to be a never-ending story.
War seems to be a never-ending story.

Merciless are the warmongers.

For they CAN see what they do.

Broken walls, broken cities,

Broken bones, Broken lives.


They CAN see and yet continue,

Smashing up for 2 feet further,

Two feet of land ...now theirs!

Some achievement: Oh How clever!


Heartless are the warmongers,

The ones behind their desks,

Appearing to not understand,

It's human lives they've in their hands.


Blown to pieces are small children,

Hiding in their schools.

No homes have they to go to, now.

Their simple houses shattered, now.


Tumbling down have come the walls,

No safety anymore at home.

No safety at their schools.

Survivors stare in wide--eyed shock.


What did l do? The children wonder?

"Why are big men trying to kill me?

Why are mum and dad not with me?

Where have all my brothers gone?"





"

PEACE.........WHEN?
PEACE.........WHEN?

How does it work? Religion and War!

I wonder how it works, this war!

Is Allah fighting the god of the jews?

The trinitarian god?

Will He be joining the battle too?.


Merciless are the warmongers,

They DO know what they do.

Another foot of land today? What gain?

How clever are big tanks and you.


The rockets and the roadside bombs,

The booby traps and mines.

Blow everyone to pieces

And still say you are part of humankind.

Understanding why wars happen is pretty black and white. Justifying them is a whole different story. Beautifully stated, Dim.

You have spoken for most of the world. Why? Are these warmongers hungry for power and greed? A beautiful poem Dim, as is the photo for peace.

Yes; God will be joining the war too so that some flesh may be saved and all will know that it is Him because He said they would. He never caused it; He just told us what would be. We just need to listen to all He has to say. I think many of us never thought we would live to see it. The end is near.

I agree, no one understand war - your poem is a tribute to peace. You state all I am thinking - so sad and meaningless. Thank you.

Thank you Jackie Lynnley.

It sounds as though you and l may be "on the same page" so to speak.

l truly believe that the One true God will step in ,..."To bring to ruin, those ruining the earth."

Thank you so much for speaking out so well for all of us. Love that image from outside the UN building. When will it happen?

I agree with Billy. There is no justification for these wars...Allah, God, have nothing to do with them. It is humanity -- or lack thereof -- that creates these atrocities. When will this insanity end? Stunning poetry, Dim.

Hi Blossom. It's great to have a comment like this from you.

I also love the image of a knot tied in the gun, and wonder when?

Thank you so much for commenting.
