War Does Go On - Poem by Francis Duggan

Us humans have not learned anything from wars now long gone
Since the killing and maiming in wars does go on
And in terrorism one of the side affects of war innocent people with their lives made to pay
For the sins of others this does seem sad to say
The people who look on human life as cheap
In reality only sowing what they will reap
If you do bad things bad things will be your due
What goes around comes around remains ever true
The war supposed to end all wars took place a century ago
And the enemy back then is no longer the foe
That some people have not learned from war history it does seem this way
We always had war men and we have war men today
Because of national flags, culture, religion and borders every day people die
The fact is we have not learned from war history and fact never lie.
