A Plea

A Plea

A Poem by lindsay

 I sit and I watch the news, to see what it being done
and sadly, I am in no shock of all the lies that are spun.
War:as if anything is really solvable by fighting.
The only thing that is driving this is our never-ending greed.

A fight for more oil, because destroying the Earth is great too.
It is not enough to lose soliders but our home to ensue.
Lives for oil?
It seems like we are getting the short end of the stick.
Remember,politicians are  the slickest of slick.
This war is much more than that for, it encompasses problems of years past.
All of which are not solved and I fear that the soliders can no longer last.
 

The soliders  are there for a losing cause.
Unfottunately for us, the enemy has no pause.
They will keep fighting. They will continue to kill.
It is our blood they are hoping to spill.
Our loved ones are not there for our country but our government
and they are dying at their exspense.


What are we fighting for?
It seems like the words of Jimi Hendrix have hit the core.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power-
we will know peace.
Listen to me.
Here our plea.

You have hit the spot with this wonderful poem i couldn't agree with you more like my own poem "BRING THE POEMS HOME NOW" i empathise with your points here,i guess the soldiers know the risks when they leave american soil and they are well paid but it is a futile war without end and benefits nobody just depriving a son, a daughter and a wife of their father and husband.
Nobody wins in a war effort look at RHUWANDA in Africa almost a million people wiped out because there were mixed messages that by killing your neighbour you might make your own life more bearable by inheriting his land.

Last line (*hear).
Other than that though, beautiful. I like the Hendrix quote at the end. It was a great addition to a moving piece. I especially like the second stanza of the poem. Politicians are slick was cool when talking about oil. A witty and thoughtful choice of words.
Keep it up.
