Treasure Island

Stanley Cooper

(August 4th,1926 / New York City)

Collosal Blunder


A preventive war
A collosal blunder
We shocked and awed
Solving what, I wonder

War embroiled
In a deadly trade-off
Blood for oil
A despicable pay-off

This war we've begotten
The values of life
Are all but forgotten
In immoral strife

    A poem that makes perfect sense to me... this has got to stop, and unfortunately something just short of a coup would bring about the proper change, the world over.
    Thanks for this thoughtful poem!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
