God's War

Evil all around
Wicked encircle the good
God sends his angels

Prince of peace arrives
Fiery flames from heaven
All armies destroyed

Tanks guns and missiles
Broken to bits and pieces
Strewn about the earth

Human rule ended
Kingdom of heaven prevails
Righteous ones remain.

soft white daisies bloom
in the barrel of this gun
where once lived red fire

Oceans filled with tears
Shed by the angels weeping 
For souls fell in war 

Fill our hearts with love  
Making war capitulate
Peace forever reigns

the water red
with the blood of sons
such is war

What People Were and What People Are

People were
Many things.
Strange or not

People were
Different and
Odd and fun.

People were
Monsters but…
That’s not all

People were
And still are
Strange and odd.

People are
People. For
life is life. 

Yet not.
Not is lies.
Truth seeps from

Every mouth
Lies, lies, lies
Move, move, move

But somehow
Lies prevail.
Lies are life.

Lies are death.
Lies are homes.
Lies are pain.

Lies are truth.
Yet somehow.
Truth prevails.

Truth is life.
Truth is death.
Truth is home.

Truth is pain.
Truth is lie.
Truth is that.

Lies will die.
Lies will cease.

Truth will live.
Truth will be.

Animals all gone.
Hope has left this place as well.
Not a thing stirring.

It's nothing. Nada.
Not a light in city.
There is no city.

What is the cause of
this this terrible disaster?
One. Stupid. Mistake
