War - Poem by Anne Pradlebury

The absolute disruption
of beautiful nature
war resides
in mortals hearts

confusion, fear,
hatred, sorrow,
all are minions
of the Absolute monarch

Nature has
no time to heal
the scars of battle
mar her pale skin

fires burn,
death hangs grimly
on desolate breath
the exultation of war!
