Dona Nobis Pacem

.
CRY!
Cry, O man
For your love of war
For the death of babes
Barely born.
Cry, O man
For the hater's screech
Coiling round the hindbrain
Beyond logic's reach
Cry, O man
For your endless greed
For the words I want
In the place of we need
Cry, O man
For your leaders lies
For religious falsehoods
As they blind your eyes
Cry, O man
For your thirst
For revenge
Cry O Man
For war to end

BBC said...

All these blogs for peace don't seem to be having any effect, those that are into war don't read them.

I prefer to protest on the street where it's more visible. Not that it seems to do any good either. These fools will just keep killing each other.

Sadlly, the only way to achieve peace seems to be to kill all the warmongers.
