Wars are Fought in the Mind


Wars are fought in the hearts of men and women
Wars last as long as the mind preparation in each camp
Surprise can beat even the strongest
The destructions in wars are equal to the nature of men's hearts

Dictators and their cronies drive people to war
People drive democrats to war
People overthrow dictators during wars
Dictators set up wars to overthrow democrats
People protect democrats
Dictators force people to protect them
What a world of wars?

Wars end in the hearts of men and women
When the energies and resources are spent
And men and women give up self-pride
And reason takes precedence over emotions
And cupid's arrow pierces the hearts
Of the embittered parties
And people's will reigns supreme!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

My lute awake! perform the last
Labour that thou and I shall waste,
And end that I have now begun;
For when this song is sung and past,
My lute be still, for I have done.
