History Unfolding

Updated on September 28, 2011
Source

History has unfolded yet again right in front of us...Bombs and wars of unimaginable proportions...when will the killings stop,

Muslims...Christians...face to face struggles against a timeless stance of war against the same religion...Abraham splitting one from the other,

Can't we just realize oil is not the answer...petroleum firing pistons...tanks fueling and patrolling among the desert sands,

I ask why...do we know the answer to the endless violence that stretches the world as a whole...tampered supplies of military appeal.


The stars have settled among their interstellar stadium seats...waiting and patiently watching the pointless fighting among this and that individual,

Bullets flaring through the night sky every hundredth round...flak cannons guiding aircraft wearily against the dunes below,

Passionate realities of generals screaming orders among their platoons...ten thousand men leave for war...two thousand come back,

Hurry hurry...tell the media they still have nine thousand...they won't know the difference...give them football...popcorn and propaganda films among every nation,

Our world can only hope they realize the mistake before it's made...the large bomb please don't drop...we need our individuality...no oppression.

History has always repeated itself...Egyptian culture... Napoleon dominance...french power to destruction of nations...off with their heads,

Persian Xerxes...Greek defense in the only way and no how...three hundred falls to their knees...Athens burned to the ground...Alexander the great,

Russia...Germany...Austria...Who shot him...oh well War again...world collapse on every level...nationalistic appeal to democratic sentimentalization,

Communism uprising...let the world know how they felt...it was so cold during those years...Cuban crisis emitting... Berlin wall collapse.


If only we had a clue...Roman republic concluding...Barber Barber Barbarians...Gaul devoid of civilized construction,

Crusades in every direction...For God...For Allah...millions died...English revenge and royal family revenge in the darkest corridors,

Tip toe through the bodies our own civilizations have created for us...for freedom we say...for security and against terrorism they say,

No...no more heroism unless a citizen steps forward...take the step to true freedom aspirations...no more war...historical peace unfolding.

Are you for or against war?

      I completely agree with that statement...history has repeated itself a million times over...

      We are suppose to learn from history. It baffles me that we choose to ignore it.

      It is time for the world to wake up before it is too late.

      I agree wholeheartedly with Vinaya's comment.

      Voted up and awesome.

      To end wars we raise wars. You have beautifully recreated the savagery of human heart.
