For Flag And Country

For god, flag and country and national pride
Too many by far in wars have fought and died
Governments have not learned the lessons of wars fought decades ago
They tell us who should be our friend and who should be our foe
Disagreements created by politicians causes anger to boil
People go to war for god and for cultures and borders and oil
And bereaved families are left for to grieve their war dead
And no hope of peace in the decades ahead
The war supposed to end all wars ended in nineteen eighteen
Where in Europe human blood turned to red the fields that were green
But many wars in the World have been fought since then
And lessons not learned from war history by arrogant men
But in huge losses of life in wars even winners do not win
And when one war does end another does begin.
