Killing For Peace


Bombs ripping up a once peaceful town
In an attempt to establish ersatz domination
Missiles of death won’t light the road to freedom
Killing for peace is a loathsome abomination

Humans lay dead some with limbs strewn about
Innocent children pay the wage of mans war
Chemical, biologic, or just old fashioned explosions
Blood upon the hands of the crowd as they roared

Shock and awe campaigns are strategies of terror
From behind desks a man calls for others to die
Then stands tall with the flags draping silent caskets
Making sure the public photo op shows him cry

Forcing surrender a displays of brutal capabilities
Percussion and flaming projectiles usher in fear
Flaming eruptions and devastation fills the voids
Weapons of mass destruction threatening our sphere

Peace can’t be won through massive eradication
Violence only attracts impassioned people of hate
Strive for peace with co-operative reconciliation
That path to co-existence should be lasting and great

Wars have us poised on the brink of annihilation
Killing of humans is absolved and glorified
Some get pumped up full of bravado and vigor
But the humanist of us are just left horrified

Because you can’t broker peace at the point of a blade
It takes compromise and the shaking of hands
The slaughter and destruction of cultures of people
Is no way to create peace through the lands

If you hide behind your religion waging battles and attacks
The integrity of your faith will for eternity dwindle
Murder in the name of Jehovah, God or Allah
Is nothing more than a sanctimonious swindle

  1. I agree with your thoughts. War and peace cannot be spoke in the same conversation. War of today are fought for control of wealth and land. The common people do not profit from war. Just lose their children to the hate of greedy and hateful men.
