Far Too Much - Poem by Francis Duggan

We never learn from the past it does seem that way
Still too much patriotism in the Human World of today
The praises of war heroes the war men do sing
Too much of anything is not a good thing
'Tis said from life the babe start learning before learning how to crawl
But from two World Wars we've not learned at all
That young men gave their lives in wars for our liberty
With such thinking I for one cannot agree
That war leads to peace more often than not is not so
The war supposed to end all wars ended nine decades ago
Wars for God and Land are still being fought today
We've not learned from the past that would seem fair to say
Far too much flag waving and nationalistic pride
And far too many people in war zones have died.
