War, War, War - Poem by Mark Heathcote

Run, run, run children take flight
Row, row, row with all your might
Swim, swim, swim don't die young
Try & try to remain upbeat & strong.

War, war, war soldier what's it all for.
Did your mother give birth to murder?
Father, Father, forgive them all we implore
Sister, sister, why do your children shudder?

War, war, war tanks & military trucks roll, roll, and roll on
War, war, war, enemy planes by the score
Want to crush the orphanage kill nothing more
War, war, war soldier what's all this killing for

Bastions of the faith what are you clinging on to
Your beliefs are in mortal ruins
The innocent are dying in firing squad executions
With them, you might as well be the aliens who hew & slew
Hew & slew, hew & slew, hew & slew, WAR! !
