The Game Of War


War is a game,
It proves that the worst loss,
Is a loss that was gained by a win,
The blood is shed,
The death is had,
Utter depression,
War happens over and over,
It never stops,
Peace is an illision,
War is greedy,
War has envy,
War shows wriath,
War enjoys gluttony,
War gains luster,
War provocks Pride,
War is made by Sloth,
Sins of 7 is what war represents,
And what war is Represented by,
Honesty is engolfed by deaf ears,
Unfeeling hearts,
And blind eyes,
War is words without meaning,
War is caused by love,
War is countined by hate,
War isn't good or evil,
It is a star that has reached its limit,
War doesn't care what, who, or where,
War is everything,
Power, strength, ability,
War runs the world,
Yet,
War,
Is simple,
But it repeats its self,
War is repetative,
What is war but a game.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

(After searching for a while I finally found it, this poem I wrote two years ago or in 2007. This was one of my first big poems, being it held the top spot for poems about war for about 3 weeks, then went down to number 2)

    Very true of the war. Well said! Nevertheless, very often people look at it from their own point of view. No impartiality, as far as dispute, which caused it, goes. what ever justification one has for it, war is an evil act and it should be done away with, at any cost. We as a nation, have suffered from a civil war with terrorists for thirty years. Sad part of this was that some nations did not view this from the proper angle, and they even supported terrorists. Please read few poems I have written on this theme too.
    Very well written and let this be an eye opener to he entire world. (Report) Reply

    Your language cuts to the chase, and slices the problem to the bare bones of what war is, you have no romantic sentiments for what war is and make some great line worth quoting I especially like

    Sins of 7 is what war represents,
    And what war is Represented by,
    Honesty is engulfed by deaf ears,

    Some great stuff there, keep up the great work! (Report) Reply

    Very powerful and passionately delivered. Well worth tidying up a little.

    Imagine if the leaders who condone war actually fought in one themselves? Would they be so keen to start the next one? (Report) Reply

    This poem has promise to it. You say you wrote it in 2007- go back now and look at it again with fresh eyes. Make some changes. Correct your spelling. Keep writing. (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
