A World Without War

A World Without War

Ever since
I first woke up
As a child
There was war
Bloody war
War stories, war movies
War hats and arms and relics
War in the past
War in the present
War in the future
Death and taxes and war
Raining death
Why?

Ever since
I last woke up
Still a child
There is war
Burning war
War art, war clothing
War paints and pistols and banners
War in the past
War in the present
War in the future
Kings and Generals and War
Reigning death
Why?

History doesn’t repeat – it continues
Flowing and crashing against rocks
History doesn’t need its scholars
To remind us what is wrong.

Ever since
I next wake up
Always a child
There will be war
There will be war
Bloody, burning, killing war
Bloody, burning, killing war
War dead, war maimed
War arms and legs and heads
War in the past
War in the present
War in the future
War
and War
and War
Death
Why?
Why?
Why?
