War


War is a beautiful painting
Full of blood as its red
Paint
Fire as its flame
And smoke as its soot
I kept thinking what a beautiful
World we have
But then I imagine
That beautiful painting
That signs nothing but destruction
Left and right
War is nothing but a disaster
Within itself
War beautiful in red
Yet deadly in black
And miserable in gray

    Nice work!
    And share mine here:

    Still, How Many


    How many lands will get showers of bullets made of new alloy?
    How many creatures would perish after the jetfighters’ cool ‘hoy’?
    How many wars does a nation have to win to own real peaceful joy?
    The answer has been there since they tried to educate the foreign uncivilized native boy.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
