!War!  What is good for? Nothing.

!War! What is good for? Nothing.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

Just thinking about good people who are missed. Thank you Edwin Starr for your song.

"
"Borders may separate countries.
But with each death in war.
A flame of life is lost."




I was the first USA citizen in one year to visit the graves of 20,000 USA Soldiers lost in one battle in WW2.

























My good friend who was killed in Iraq with his children in 2004.





















Rachel Corrie. A human shield killed trying to protect a clinic.

Author's Note

Coyote Poetry
I'm tire of war. I was raised with the Vietnam war. My children have the Bush's war. I pray for peace. Time for all people to demand the end to war. I know the 1.2 trillion dollar spend on war could create jobs and help education.

I have thought much about it man. The govts of the world can wage no war without men willing to fight. The paranoia of having to defend ourselves is a great evil. There must be civil disobedience and the acceptance of a law of humanity that supercedes the laws of panels of men. Charity to all in need is the way to get there.

War is obsolete, it is the failure of men and diplomacy - no soldier wants war, but every soldier must fight to stop wars. Ernie

If only governments would realise what a pointless trifle war is. This is a wonderfully fitting tribute.

I agree with your desire for peace. Hope that it happens someday so tears can stop, Divine Intervention we could use these days.

my o my, 1.2 trillion?! that's a shock. Anyway, you are so very right here. War does nothing but destroys, bring tears to your eyes, and kills. Thank you so much for sharing your message...

coyote this is good stuff. I apologize for not reviewing your work too often, but whenever I log on, I'm always glad to do it. I could not agree anymore with this, war is just terrible. I have never been to war, yet I know (or at least only have an idea) of how terrible it is. It makes so frustrated to know that there are so many people who say they would die for their country and die thinking they did, when in reality their lives were wasted on stupid unnecessary wars. It's depressing thinking of it. Not to get political, but I consider looking into Ron Paul, he has the same view as we do on these expensive wars. Sorry about the politics, just thought I'd throw that out there since all of these politicians are the reason we're there.

I am also tired of war, this hits the nail on the head. Did two tours in Afghanistan. There's no point being over there, it's a lost cause. I support my country, but not this war. Thanks for your poem brother.
