This War’s For You.. - Poem by Ray Harrington

Microwave with packaging too

This War’s for you

No Secondhand – everything new

This War’s for you

A 4 by 4 won’t smaller do?

This War’s for you

Living in your plastic zoo

This War’s for you

The rubbish that just grew and grew

This War’s for you

The things you brought and threw

This War’s for you

Heating up to 32

This War’s for you

A Revolution perhaps a coup

This War’s for you

Children maimed by bombs that flew

This War’s for you

TV propaganda for you to View

This War’s for you

    oh, lovely.
    you have a nice style, a defiant yet restrained, cold tone.
    very nice, especially with the content and theme. (Report) Reply
