Utter not: War as legal,
Speak not too, killing as moral.
For millenniums, the breath
Of millions got robbed; delivering death
Got spoken of as means for birth
Or maintenance of ideals in this earth
Void of love. Mass cullings licensed
As war, and its twisted use pronounced
With pride to the glee of ruling elites,
And to the delight of battle field profiteers’!
Moral and just wars, the world heard enough!
What moral in a war? Butchery and plunder!
To maim and torch! To fire drones to blunder
The lives of innocent civilians; or endless buff
Of chemical, biological and crude weapons
Into densely populated cities; while morons
In cockpits gleefully target persons on the ground
Like target shooting played on video games!
Wars have sunk man to his ultimate shame!
Rebels, radicals, conservatives, dictators,
Socialists, jihadists, liberals, democrats:
To wage war and to form alliance for a kill,
Be they of any shade of politics, they’re all evil.
The kings’ wars fought in isolated battle fields,
While modern wars delivered on concrete mazes
Of homes, refugee camps, shelters and hospitals.
From them, in shivering fear, rolling tears, eyes gases
At onrushing death fast on to them. That last
Moments of death, if imposed on those
Who initiate wars, perhaps an end to wars
Could be found! So dreams an idealist.
