Cain & Abel

Rating: 4.9

The beginnings of wars begun.
Brother slew brother, mankind undone.
Crying blood of centuries of wars.
Mimics the first, done without a gun.
It was a curse to CAIN in the end.
War today is a curse, no friend.
Intensity has built through the age.
Atomic bombs, maybe the final page.
All from the flood family of NOAH.
Brother slaying brother, like coiling boa.

Every day the news spells it's ways.

An outstanding Truth about the HUMAN nature captured in a beautifully penned poem...The evil side is inherent in everyone of us, but the person's power lies in his ability to defeat this side in him...Read my poem Inner and Outer Peace.

Clever Poem Joe, Wise way with words, Behoping perhaps someday someone will read and think twice before contriving to treat life as an expendable commoditie, like some of the junk bonds traded of late. Thanks again for viewing my Poems, oft enhanced by my devotion to Biblical Prose of our Greatest reference Book. By understanding and searching each and every day we hold in our hands the true path to Peace and can show the way.Oh boy can we show the way?

'So from the beginning, to today. Mankind has not changed in any way.' War can never resolve anything. History is a proof of this, yet wars happen till date and people are wasting money (which can be utilized to help the poor and the needy in this overpopulated poverty stricken world) in making weapons of mass destruction. Gr8 poem.10++
