After the world has already burned
Maybe something will be learned,

Maybe nobody will regret
All the people they haven't met,

All speeches of hate lead to death
A war ends not in victory if there is less breath,

A starving body then goes cold,
Question why they never got old,

Question what you have learned to know,
Is heaven up and hell below,

Is somebody else always at fault
If you did nothing to stop the assault,

If mushroom clouds are the only sky
You save a life if you just ask why.

*nods* normally I'm not a fan of rhyming poetry, but you did a very good job with this.
