The Genealogy of War

May 19, 2008
By Steven Glatt, Woodmere, NY

Death and Decay,
Are it's children.
Spawned from the curse of war.

Misery and Desolation,
Are it's siblings.
Accompanying the blight of war.

Deception and Manipulation,
Are it's compatriots.
Aiding the wretched cause of war.

And the Fools and the Misguided,
Are it's parents.
Giving birth to the hell that is war.
