Uncomfortable Truths About Wars

Lethal Thermobaric Bombs

Also known as vacuum bombs

Sucking the oxygen out of the air

For many miles. Nuclear and cluster bombs

And the worst of the sickest bombs

Of all: obvious racism at the borders

Life is never, never, never fair

Even in war, for many brothers and sisters

The shelling will not stop

Too many explosives are being popped

Innocent and young people are dying

And the hypocrites, the racists

The murderers, the war-mongers

The cowards, the propagandists

The shenanigans, the monsters

The fakers, the sinners and the liars

Are on the very top of their games

What a shame! They shoot all blames

Toward the victims and the innocents

Remember the shameful wars

Remember the shattered lives

Remember the blaring sirens

Remember the supersonic sounds

Remember the deafening cries

Remember the powerful roars

The constant shelling makes no sense

Because children are being killed

That’s a lethal and deceptive ploy

Real humans should build

Not bomb, not destroy

I am pissed

For Peace

It’s shameful and despicable that no one wants

To live by the rules. Where is the common sense?
