Not trained in the use
Of weapons of war

Rotten, lying, infamous politician should read this poem and learn how to behave in life. But! Unfortunately, poets don't run things, crooks do! Wonderful, universal poem, that All should read and learn something good, for a change in the lost society of today.

Humble words of a noble heart. I love these figures - allusion and simile inter alia - in play. An accomplished literary effort, dear poet.
