Getting Lost in Peace
Getting Lost in Peace
When a man loses his bearings
In a land of riches and honey
He sometimes loses sight of life’s tribulations
Spoiled to the core he wonders what the heck for?
Why should he care of the dying and oppressed
Surely he made not this mess?
Let them starve and be slaughtered
Not like any of them are his daughters
Politicians have lost all their backbones
Afraid to stand up for what is right
There is no enemy
If you are an ostrich with a long neck
The world may indeed be dark
Yet peaceful with your head buried down deep
Keep our soldiers here, we all say
Let those slobs and aliens all weep
Leaders today want your vote
Let the others all drown in their old tipsy boats
We have saved the world a million times or two
Giving cash to ease our conscience and feeling goody two shoes
When the weak and meek are raped and slaughtered
Who with a heart would not send a soldier or twelve?
If you live in another county, guess what? You’re in hell
We save our own, but we won’t save you
We don’t like war you see, for us is about peace not humanity
Notes 1) Being against saving people from the horrors of oppression and torture, be it a regime or terrorists well is like saying I am against doctors and heart surgery.
Notes 2) No matter how flat is a pancake, it always has two sides.
Note 3) I do not know anyone with a sane mind that is for war. Certainly not any General or soldier that has seen the horrors of war. Today, we often confuse interventions, or saving literally complete communities from slaughter based on race, religion or tribal affiliations, as going to war. I have these words for you, Grow UP! Enemies? Again grow up, there is pure evil out there, ISIS is a prime example. If you have any doubts as to my words, and of course when you lift your head from the sand, go and visit some regions, and tell those people to their faces, you can stop it, but well you don’t want too.
My heart goes out to the Yazidis who quite frankly are almost wiped out as a people. Also The Syrian people gassed to death with sarin gas want to thank you all for being against war, they are so happy you stood by and said , oh my that’s terrible.
In Western nations, politicians do nothing more than reflect your views, if you do not like them, maybe look in the mirror. I do not mean each individual view but the majority, and when the majority does not care? Well you can connect the dots. If however, one disagrees with that statement, I will tell you some good news! You have the freedom to go out and run for office yourself and make a difference. Before you laugh at the statement, remember you need to get off the couch first.
