War - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

War, despicable, is insanity
Knowing no mercy
Indiscriminately killing innocence
Plundering and harvesting lives.

Since the civilising of mankind
War has raged upon the planet
Being fought for greed and empire
With bloody sword of Conquest.

War is Hell let loose upon the earth
Screams of mothers losing children
Innocence raped and brutalised
Wickedness gone mad and rampant.
