War Is...


War is triumph,
War is gain,
War is heartache,
War is pain.

War is duty,
War is great,
War is stupid,
War is waste.

War is brother,
War is dad,
War is mother, crying,
War is sad.

War is death,
War is tears,
Wars don't end
They last for years.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
