Such Sad News - Poem by Francis Duggan

Such sad news on t v and radio every day
From war torn countries from here far away
From Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Afghanistan
Conflicts seem never ending the decades they do span
Conflicts over politics and borders and religious hate
In needless deaths through violence nothing to celebrate
Human life taken cheaply where trouble is rife
And the bitterest conflicts born of civil strife
Where civilians are badly injured and dying no side can claim they are right
Of conflicts in the World no end seems in sight
When one war is over another begin
And in war even so called winners do not win
Such sad news from Countries from here far away
In this troubled old World we live in today.
