POEMS ABOUT WAR

WAR IS FRAUD

Made a hero

for the orders

and the kills

on the fields.

 

Had a medal

service rendered

for no cause

of his own.

 

Back at land

broke a hand

of a man

for a cause.

 

In the prison

often thought

about the war

and its fraud.

 

HOUNDS OF WAR

When

the hounds of war

ravage

the luxuriant pastures of prosperity

melodies of the dove slumber

under the foliage of the rainbow

of discontent.

 

The sun

saluting the dismal flag

of the stinking atmosphere

appears to mock

the robots of fire.

 

The dove pleads

that the dance of the hounds

be stopped

to let her pacifying carol

fortify human muscles

to build more Taj Mahals.

 

IF THERE BE A THIRD WORLD WAR

If another war breaks out

no one may survive

to watch 

the white front of the moon

that is often so  fascinating

and to sit in  pleasant warmth

of the sunshine

or be captivated by the vastness 

of an unmoving glossy ocean

under a starlit stilly night.

 

The clear blue skies will glow 

through the mist and rains

seasons may come and go 

but no singer to glorify  them

and also

the gleam from the moon

glancing off the ruffled lakes.

 

Mother shall be lonesome

gases hover on her

the hounds of disease wander

living will be

worse than dying

    We may all know war is bad, but we all need to be reminded, to be reminded of how the beauty can fade, and how the ugliness can take its place. “Seasons may come and go, but no singer to glorify them”, and you have done it well. You glorified the simple things around us that we may take them for granted. Hope to see you Reading soon.
