IOI (7/4/1934 / Hebburn.Co Durham U.K)

Thankless Task.

Thankless Task.

Death never takes a holiday.
He has too long a waiting list.
He has to work twelve hours a day.
Because we humans will persist.

In fighting wars for no good cause.
We cannot learn to live in peace
We always think that sheer brute force
Will overcome our enemies..

It seems that we will never learn
violence begets violence
and hatred will hatred return
We seem bereft of moral sense.

When friendship can pay dividends.
Why human beings choose to fight
Make enemies instead of friends.
When they could do the opposite,

Death never takes a holiday.
Although really needs a rest..
He has to work twelve hours a day.
He has good reason to protest.

Perhaps when the last man dies.
Then death can take a holiday.
He will rejoice at our demise.
And who could blame him anyway.
