We don't want to fight no-more

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

September poetry number twelve.

"

We don’t want to fight no-more.


Once brave boy believed war would save our world. The brave boy became a man. He fought for a Government who would forget him after the battles ended.


Once a soldier, now he seek peace in the shadows of loud old men in Washington who believe we need more guns and separation.


Today the man preaches for the song of peace. He told the young people. I put thousands in body-bags. Their face, were just like my face. Just men dying for the greedy men in this world who love hate and separation.

He told the children. No religion in war. Just men fighting till they can’t no-more. No-one will win and the young shall pay for the pretend wall of separation.


No mama or papa want their son or daughters to die for the cause of religion, oil and land. I ain’t marching for war no-more.


I am seeking the men and women of peace. I am so tire of war and I do not want my grandchildren to fight and learn.

No-one win in war and the profit of war are the rich contractors create by the death machine.


Today world. Dancing on madness and can we stop the madness.


I pray we learn. Every child in my world. Need a safe place to live, food to eat and opportunity to do great things. But the men of war screams cover-up the words of hope and peace.


Will the last man standing ask. Who won the wars? No-one.

The passion and the way you wrote this feels brilliant, smart and full of wisdom. Each word feels so carefully picked to fit the poem and I can just really feel the passion in this piece. Thought-provoking and dark. It’s such an awful thing that some people hardly even realize how bad war can be because we’re so used to it. Thank you for sharing this piece! Brilliantly written.

Nobody ever wins a war. Some wars must still be fought because of aggression. We have a current Secretary of State now calling the Taliban the "de facto government" in Afghanistan. Calling the Taliban any sort of "government" is like calling Adolf Hitler a hero. We teach our children, mathematics, history, English, social studies and other lessons. The Taliban teaches one thing, Jihad. They teach the children to kill the "infidels"; to kill everyone who does not follow Islam. They teach hatred and murder. Someone must stand against tyranny and aggression or we must all fall from it. I'm reminded of these words, "The triumph of evil does not require good men to become evil. It only requires that good men do nothing." In this new world of "acceptance" and "tolerance", I'm wondering what will they do when faced by the enemy or will they even recognize the enemy at all until it has destroyed them and not only them but everything they ever loved or held dear, including children, homes and family.

SO VERY TRUE....
Every child does need a place place to live as well as a bed to sleep.
it is so sad that everyone does. It is a sad world we live in today.
We all should be grateful for what we have.

Thank you dear friend. I am very tire of war my friend.
I agree with your general premise, Coyote. But I must ask, how else do you deal with people like the Islamic State terrorists?

Apparently war is ingrained in the human being with evidence stretching back as far as we do.
Not much of a recommendation for the species
Very well said
Enough is enough

You are welcome.
Great choice of topic and fabulously written. It reminded me of a poem - " John Brown " written by Bob Dylan. I believe a war is never a victory for any of the parties as those who lost their lives can't be replaced .
There are a lot of lines I liked in your poem but this one is my favorite-

"Today world. Dancing on madness and can we stop the madness."

Thank you dear Anjeline. I pray we learn to seek peace, before we cannot.
i totally agree with your poem words coyote.
if presidents or prime ministers had to be in the front line of any war, like the kings did in the middle ages, they would soon find a way of diplomacy, & forget about a land or power grab.

Thank you dear Carola. I wish our leaders had tasted blood. The taste of war wouldn't be so sweet.
