War

War

A Poem by marcus
"

you're not supposed to like it!

"
Dropping bombs, does that please?
Chemicals, in the breeze
Small children crying, dying, lying
By the roadside, limbs flying
Ammunition pounding, a people into devastation
Frustration
Mothers crying, governments lying
And no one trying
To care
For its all far off, happening over there

The land is poisoned, until it bleeds
Slowly all life recedes
Depleted uranium shell casings
Guarantee the devastation
Will last many a generation
Children being torn apart
Limb from limb, how can this be?
Savage butchery is not an art
It merely makes us depart
From our humanity!

Did I mention children dying, mothers crying
Such sorrow and tragic grief overlying
Our hearts

You have a talent of enlightening (play on words, sorry it is a habit of mine, my one word protests) dark subjects. The living nightmare of war is so vulgar you would think mankind would be so reviled by it that it would be a thing of the past not a daily possibility. I like dark poetry so thank you for posting, I have enjoyed reading your work this morning.

powerful, graphic and emotional with a moral outcry for our humanity. great piece. only quib, i hope you don't mind, when i was reading the poem line 15 interrupted the flow a little. but great piece nonetheless, i love anti war poetry!
