~ God and War ~

God created war; the weapons by man
That they might war survive.
For no man without a weapon can
From this great fault revive.
When good men fight, they protect
The peace they work to keep.
Without a gun we can’t reject
The foe that makes us weep.
There will always be a foe to meet
So long as we love and scorn;
Eternal the sound of marching feet
Who were for the battle born.
As love defines the emotion hate
Then peace doth mirror war.
