Gained From War


War is stupid, wrong
War causes only pain
It kills both weak and strong
Simply put war is insane

War is unjust
It smoothers out hope
War brings disgust
This world just can’t cope

You, you call war
You live in bloody glory
Evil right to the core
Just to see you in the news story

Come on, have a heart
War is misery, sorrow, loss
Think of the family tore apart
Think of the swords that cross

In others pain you gain
Popularity, followers, fame
But this shows, you are no longer sane
This sorrow only has you to blame

War is stupid, wrong
War causes only pain
It kills both weak and strong
Simply put war is insane

    the giant jaws of war must be fed
    since it's release from the shed
    over and over as it chomps and shreds
    war comes custom colors, looks great in red (Report) Reply
