Grenades

Drop bombs on the ground to diminish the enemy;
Destroy your spirit,
Armies thousands of loved ones strong
Soldier on,
On our extraordinary Earth spills unnecessary blood,
Hearts, minds and bodies broken,
Children listen to the sound of sirens,
Knowing nothing else, seeing only hurt,
Reckless, totalitarian minds of power
Disgust my ears and eyes,
The simplicity in retreating
Is too much for them to handle,
From oval offices they throw human grenades.
