peace at last


Another rocket, another bomb issuing yet more smoke
Buildings falling, dust and rubble, shield your face or choke
More incendiaries that heat the earth
The family of man have no value of life and it's worth
Populations expand, more mouths to feed
Less and less land and it produces more weed
At a time in the future when we are all gone
The earth will sigh and say "thankfully that's all done".

    I laughed at the last line, the cynic in me cannot help but agree this planet needs some breathing space from the funny apes. Perhaps one day there will be peace, but something else will just come along. A top read agreeing with 110%, and then a little more. (Report) Reply

But after my making thou write more true!
