War - Poem by Unnamed Weirdo

Anger, hate and greed consumes this world
A pointless plight for something more
the reasons for this constant conflict are untold
politicians only wish to play and settles the score
Could all this be some selfish decision or act
that is being portrayed for something important
disillusioning with pretty speeches and distract
the people of what it really is, a war, a hunt

Pity, the world is sick and dying
remorse families' grief is crying
As they watch their love wounded and dead
for a cause worthless, only destruction, no end
As the anger rages, from change to revenge
the lust of power consumes those, cant fight and indulge
In the name of peace they fight, and lay down their lives
With the hope that one day war would end and peace strives
Only to be used as pawns in terrible games
As their rifles, they fall, so do all forget their names
