Sonnet: Scattered are the War-clouds


Perhaps the war got called off, just for now;
But anyway, ’tis such a great relief;
And why to ponder or to wrinkle brow?
Of time, lives, property, war is a thief!

Who wants a war that turns out quite costly?
Who will invite economic disaster?
Who wants a full-scale nuclear war firstly?
Most modern wars are precise and faster.

But what to do if the foe never relents,
And keeps irking us by a proxy war;
Our army-men must live always in tents,
And watch the enemy moves from afar.

’Tis one man’s frenzy causing woe to all;
The world should see that such leaders should fall.

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
