Mr. President

Mr. President

A Poem by Sweet Emotions

Just some thoughts on pointless wars.


Mr. President,

How many of our sons and daughters

died today

for your “war on terror”?

Don’t you know he terror isn’t over there?

It’s in our midst.

Land of the free?

Home of the brave? 

I don’t think so.

Not when our freedom costs so much

Is a life saved worth the

thousands lost?

Is proving your power worth

all this?

I don’t think so.

The weapons of mass destruction aren’t in

Iraq or Iran or f*****g Afghanistan.

The weapons of mass destruction are in our hearts.

Seeds planted by skewed laws and


Mr. President,

It wasn’t your daughter killed

or your cousin deployed

and you won’t wake up next to someone

screaming with PTSD induced night terrors.

And you still think the terrorists aren’t among us?

I don’t think so.

He's a pass down of a Rothschild. The one percent. Dooming. I like the honesty and intent here. Good write.

so true. My whole family was, and is, military so the horrors of war run pretty deep. I agree with you completely, and I think that you've written a very powerful message here. Very well done!

Sounds like a great poem

To be honest, the brilliant yet baffling metaphors full of profound insight are so deeply personal and alienating, they flew over my head'

True statements! I have to agree fully

This certainly makes people think. i agree, we have to worry about the terror in this country and not about others
