War has no winners


 

When will man ever learn?
What wisdom needed to discern?
No killing is above the law,
No winners in any war.
‘We won’t put up with their threats,
We’ll kill the enemy with our jets,
Top brass to control the press,
Tell the truth more or less.’
‘Collateral Damage’ is what they call it;
Don’t like to say what caused it.
Innocent people blown to pieces,
Don’t mention this in press releases.
It seems we never learn from history,
Finding a peaceful solution still a mystery.
We live the lie of “war and glory”.
War has no winners, is the truthful story.
