"All you need is Love."-The Beatles


Bombs rain down,
Ash all around.
The people are dead,
Hearts of lead.
Chemicals fly,
Down from the sky.
Look, for this is war.
The land is torn,
Scarred,
And marred.
The earth has been filled,
With the blood that has spilled.
Fought without honor,
Many were slaughtered.
Look, for this is war.
What is it good for?

This was written to express my anti-war sentiments, and to describe the affects of war.

Wow! Exceptional poem! Honestly, I'm not generally a fan of anti-war poetry, but this really is a great poem! Kudos in the highest!
