A War To End All Wars

A War to End All Wars

written by: David Gray-Hammond



I see fire,
Raining down on the world,
Is this the future that we were sold?

Dystopian nightmares,
And chauvinist dictators,
Is this nature pulling the breakers?

I see man killing man,
So they can own a spot,
Of the loneliest seat on the loneliest dot.

And all the while,
The universe uncaring,
Ignores the flags and the uniforms we are wearing.
