Comments on War ©

by H Marshall
Scotland
2003

Afraid!
Diplomacy derailed.
Dismayed!
Discussions have failed.

Perplexed!
Diplomats confused.
Vexed!
People bemused.

Pensive!
What else to try?
Expensive!
Many will die.

Mobilising!
Military might.
Surprising!
Attacks by night.

Sounding!
Rumbles of war.
Pounding!
Shells from afar.

Unabated!
Bombing and noise.
Decimated!
Young soldier boys.

Avoid!
People and homes.
Destroyed!
Rubble and bones.

Hysterical!
Prisoners interned.
Historical!
Still nothing learned.
