War Some More


War. And war some more.
War. And war some more.
No one knows,
What it's for,
War. And war some more.

The images seem
To rule the day,
War and Generals,
All the same,
All the answers,
Seem so lame,
All our reason,
Gone insane.

War. And war some more.
War. And war some more.
No one knows,
What it's for,
War. And war some more.

    Rev. J. Jackson believes we must commit troops to Africa to stop genocide, but we must pull out of Iraq. He wants to stop the killing of blacks. Never mind the Iraqis. Yes, one purpose of war is to stop the killing, protect the innocent. So, we remain free to criticize, complain, and go about our selfishness. (Report) Reply

    Rhythm but no answers. It is untrue that no one knows what wars are for, and I think you ought to make this kind of war poem into a big one, covering all the bases.

And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
