Another War

Posted: September 1, 2013 in poetry

Another war is looming,
while war profits are booming.
The economy is down and out
but profiteers are cheering loud.
The fate of 22 millions
decided by the billions
to be made on bombs and planes
and on other gravy trains.
When, oh when will this ever end?
Only then, when the West will spend
its efforts and wealth
no longer in stealth
operations of horrific crime.
I know that there will come a time,
when the west will have to bear the blame
and we all will have to bow in shame
of what has been done in our name!

    A harrowing denouement to this eloquent cynicism. Well done.
