War mongers and politicians never learn
Claiming war the answer for freedom and prosperity
Without regard to those who pay in blood
Military lives cut short, remembered by a poppy.
War is hell on earth with mass killing of innocence
Destruction of cities with countries invaded
People abused and raped, starving, living in misery
Widows, widowers, and orphans, and displaced persons
Subjected to a conquering army's rule.
When war ends there remains graves of dead soldiers
Row upon row of white crosses in foreign fields
