As a follow up to the poem above I have written my own poem to post my vote against the futility of war, the result usually of failed programs of politicians.

War, damnable war.

how many lives unlived but a while

have been sacrificed to someones

obscene thoughts of conquest vile,

lives cut short in youth and promise

by soldiers in the trench, by soldiers

who in times fast forward and anonymity

will not know whom it was they slew

or cause they followed. In the end who is

the winner when unlived lives are lost

for reasons unknown.
