Willoughby is mad as hell...in 1940... Ooops...
WAR ... AND MORE...
Ever seen the letters W... A and R together before?
Oh yes... Anew not only those are making WAR.
Will that frequent horror ever pass?
inexcusable "Thing" on Humanity’s ass!
An everlasting incurable boil ghastly sore,
the worst of Humanity and more?
Constantly coming and going like the tide,
But when and where
just a few decide.
People are masters of hate and grisly deed,
Never taught what is wanted might not be of need.
Power and ambition never ask permission,
Whilst irrational hate use provocation,
And millions of lives face elimination.
Eloquence and Hypocrisy firmly hand in hand,
We call Diplomacy... politicians understand.
Greed for power mortal weapons do invent,
And again from brave men in the skies,
More death and hellish horrors are sent,
As angels with devastating metal wings,
Abolish infinitely more than things…
Am I still asking is a God truly up there?
Guaranteed He is near and with many side,
Billions in His glory sanctimoniously hide.
Believed defended by forgiveness and love,
Many are blessed by a man Holier than Thou.
good business throughout history,
Merciless souls hardly thought that a mystery.
Nothing was ever
nailed unshakably tight,
Even souls are bought if the price is right.
Most never find meaning in being too meek,
For hardly anyone will turn the other cheek.
As for Humanity’s desperate, everlasting quest,
The God called Power was always the best.
There was never a War ending all that is War,
And just as the forgotten ones in times of yore,
Will you later give a damn what this one was for?
Yet dispensable battalions will always fight,
For pay, honor and what insisted is right.
Brave soldiers always proud not to complain,
Are heroes dying well in seas, mud and rain,
As one more profitable War must be won,
Still wonder… Why the hell all of it begun?
Christmas Eve 1940
