More War In Store?
Poem By Tom Higgins
I am so lucky, for,
I have no experience of, nor,
have I ever suffered from it ever before,
nevertheless, I truly abhor,
that most cruel of human behaviours, war!
Down through the centuries, man,
seems to find, wherever he can,
the excuse he needs, so he can plan,
his next major conflict, rather than,
looking at ways in which to make,
permanent peace, for mankind's sake!
Maybe I am simple, maybe naive,
but how many more people will have to grieve,
before leaders learn to embrace humility,
and all agree on the waste and futility,
of each wicked, evil pointless fight,
to prove their point, that they are right!
