~ God and War ~

Life is war; it comes from God.
It does not come from man.
Millions dead lie in the sod
Due to the religion they had.
God mixed their tongues, confused their brains,
Turned one against the other
So now we, burdened by these chains,
For freedom fight our brother.
We all can dream and wish for peace
But peace is part of war.
Thus how can all these killings cease?
A sea must have a shore!
And while we wait and serve our lease
There will be more and more.
