Men Die And Kill For - Poem by Francis Duggan

Men die for flag and Country and because of religious and racial and cultural differences wish on each other ill
And because of love and money and territorial disputes are willing for to kill,
Women too commit murders but compared to males it is known female murderers are few
These are old statistics relevant to today and in this there is nothing new
Females to support violent causes and wage war on others than males far less inclined
There is and has always been far more aggression in the macho male kind
Religion, nationalism and patriotism are causing problems Worldwide
And some men think it is okay for to kill since they have god on their side
Long before money became fashionable men murdered for the love of gold
In some ways men have not changed that much since the long gone days of old
Wherever macho men are there is bound to be anger about
Human male aggression the Human World would be better off without
Doubtless i never will live to see a World free of violence and crime
But this will not occur in the near future or at least not in my time.
