WAR

God directed us to war without choice;
We reacted to his powerful voice
Or yet we do what is natural to do.
Either way, it matters not which is true.
For the fact is we have always fought wars
That all humanity apparently deplores
But seem not to force it to cease
To enjoy its opposite, which is perpetual peace.
So what is the answer, I pray…
What have the intellectual experts to say?
Do they know any better than you
Because yours is a less educated view?
Or is it a fact that theirs was an act
To disguise something that they never knew?
