The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse 2 War


I am War! !
The whore of your governments.
I ride my black steed among you
At their invitation.
I rain down upon you
from the skies.
I visit you from beneath the waves.
I set a blazing trail across your lands.
I slaughter your children
I rape your women
I maim and kill your soldiers.
Meanwhile;
Your fat, pink, politicians
In their ill-fitting suits
Hide safely behind rhetoric.
While I destroy
Your homes and your cities.
God is not on your side!
God plays no part!
I was born of humankind.
You have a way to defeat me
Your weapons are:
Love, tolerance, Understanding
But your arsenal is much depleted.
And you refuse to restock.
Beware! !
I surround you
I plan
The final battle! !

    The ugliness of war so starkly stated. A warning but also an answer in the weapons ever available to destroy this ugliness of war. Love Tolerance and Understanding... these tools are ever available, can't be bought with any world currency, and are powerful and enduring...and lie deep within every one of us... the last hope for this world... I Love your Apocalypse series... (Report) Reply

When the hours of Day are numbered,

Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
