O Dancing Death


O dancing death..
From where do you come?

I fear to hear the word peace!
From the dirty Duke with Nuke.

How long peace will kill
The peace loving people?

I am dying without death.
O dancing Death..
From where do you come?

    hypocrisy of words
    hanging the peace, and
    wiring us with fear
    packing of war within business plan and boom
    and baking the death dancing the death self distraction of mankind/well done and thanks to share (Report) Reply
