A war


A war of words, a war of words
Only in their simplicity we can afford

These spoken words when out of control
Bury nations in graves deeper than any hole

A war of friends, a war of friends
Is okay at the end if met with amicable amends

A war of skills, a war of skills
Will do us good if fun is the main course meal
And not the coveted need to feel to kill

A war of love, a war of love
But even love has its own boundaries
Think of overloading clothes at the laundries
Hate is the only thing love will not shove

A war of nations, a war of nations
Is irreversible condemnation
The effect on this earth’s population
Could be the birth of human destruction

    You might ask why we love to fight and make war, nobody likes a war in fact people hate wars, yet we still have them in this wonderful world of ours. A world without them would be bliss, happiness and love but this is too idealistic a wish for our crazy world. Keep writing I like what you have to say. Bob (Report) Reply

    You're absolutely right, and say it extremely well in this to-the-point poem. A world without war...so much more productive, appealing, happy. One day, humans will learn peace is the best present under the Christmas Tree of nations. Well said and well done, Sylvia! ! xxElysabeth (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
