There Is No Peace Without War - Poem by Sincair Farrell

When the desire for war is greater than the quest for peace
humanity will continue to witness the detoriation in the value of human life
as pawns in a politically motivated game
played by elitist war mongers sat on thrones
dictating the blood stained results

In a world, where peace has become an illusion
manipulated & maintained by ideological differences
blood conflicts are driven by profit
war has become a business
a businness which thrives on the amount of weapons sold
and even death toll

innocent victims of war are deemed collateral damage
the price which will have to be paid
because the life of civilians in foreign lands
are virtually meaningless anyway

It seems the cost of human life pales in comparison
to the financial and political gains received by the beneficiaries of war
those who continue to invest money in starting wars abroad
but ruthlessly ignore those desperate for help right at their front door

This is the world we live in
a desperate state of affairs
how can we ever have peace?
If war is the only answer.
