What is war?

War is brutal War kills It does more than we Could ever imagine It profits the wealthy And kills the poor It destroys humanity It kills families Reasons are varied Money, race Territories, for what Who shall war profit Besides the rich man Nobody else It won't bring peace That's for sure It won't change anything It leaves soldiers Wounded and traumatized Coming home Psychologically damaged It's not the same Some wars are planned Others are unexpected  The consequences  For their actions Only God knows We don't need  No more trouble We don't need no trouble What we need is love
