THE WHEEL KEEPS ON TURNING

War is about religion, do not argue! It is true,
Most folk are brainwashed except perhaps a few.
It’s about ‘power over others’ fed by natural greed,
Propaganda and bullshit! The will to succeed!
Why do we deny it? It has always been this way,
So why not be honest, add some truth to what we say.
The world requires a leader, a God if you prefer,
To rule over a single religion: a him or a her.
We have Popes; we have Kings, dictators and more,
All seeking to win by waging their own kind of war.
But the goal is the same it is power over all,
So one by one they climb the hill, totter there and fall.
And the wheel just keeps on turning
Making no headway at all.
