War Machine


war is a machine that is controlled by made men
war is a machine that run's on blood
war is a machine that that destroy's the land it is on
war is a machine that break's family's in two
war is a machine that kills hundred's of people
war is a machine that will keep on killing
war is a machine that will not stop moving
war is a machine that will kill off the human race
war is a machine that is out of control
war is a machine that is kept running by the devil
war is a machine that need soldier's to keep running

we can stop it if we try
it will die if we try to kill it
put a pipe in the gearbox of the machine
put your body apon levers and mack it stop
do what you can
till the made men that wont let this go on
if war is a machine you can stop it

poet Hilaire Belloc

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
