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.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
