Peace and war

Peace and war Why should the world like a magdalene Cry over the war heinous atrocities Abide reaping scores of casualties like sardines Castigate fate and disregard unbridled hostilities Why should the world license instead War merchants over our destiny preside Amble leisurely and upon our values tread Inundate the market and imposts hide Why should the world continue to swallow this bait Let arms dealers bedevil our feeble minds Turn a deaf ear to quandary and so peace ignite Bury the hatchet and peace pipe light We will tarry to God insistently implore Yet bring war criminals to justice and terminate this folklore.
