Creation Of Heros - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Another saber to sharpen,
When a war is planned and announced.
The economy depends on it.
And that's what these conflicts are about.

The creation of heros,
And the pocketing of expenses.
The creation of new weapons.
And the plotting of defenses.

Another saber to sharpen,
When a war is planned and announced.
The economy depends on it.
And that's what these conflicts are about.

The creation of heros,
And the pocketing of expenses.
The creation of new weapons.
And the plotting of defenses.

With the ignoring of the warriors...
Returning wounded and shattered.
And images of victory splattered to convince...
This mindlessness is in the best of someone's interest!
