LOOTING

Charles J. Ingerson: Looting

Children fighting in the wars of time
having nothing and thus only to fight
millions under the age of fifteen years
found barely surviving on battlefields
without shoes or jackets or blankets
thus looting the dead for their booty
removing identifications and valuables
only striving to survive wars hardships
while they’ve done their best to live
others looting for the spoils of war
older and known to understand
to the victor goes the spoils found
even if beyond the moral rules
much as our governments today
looting because they can and do
while children fighting in the wars
seeing what others do to survive
found engaging as small animals
mimicking their elders in the spoils!
