Faux Battles, In An Unending War.

Voices cry out, in this war that has no end,
Gunfire cracks and bombs are released,
As each person runs to their side to defend,
The wicked folly of their own beliefs,
In this war that has no end.

Slurs are shouted,
As troops are rallied;
Propaganda machines are mounted,
And faux victories are tallied,
In this war that has no end.

They don’t wonder the source of hostilities
They never take a moment to reflect,
They just claim hollow victories,
And peace is the first thing they reject,
In this war that has no end.

Reason’s forsaken with covered eyes,
In order to commit atrocities,
Each side claims they’re victimized,
So they can justify their bigotry,
In this war that has no end.

This endless war is not a war,
And those who fight refuse to see,
How their anger makes the world poor,
They’re too filled with hatred to find peace,
So they fight in a faux war that has no end.
