The Gods of War

The Gods of War are rising, they beat their hairy chest;

their followers are waking – north, south, east and west.

“There is no other answer” they scream through our TV screen;

“There is no other answer”; those vile images you’ve seen.”

“The enemy are monsters” they’ve told ‘fore every war

“The enemy are monsters and you can take no more.”

“So rise up now young voters and show your mettle true

and know that in the future we’ll sing dirges to dead you.”

And so another generation will learn the pain of war;

as we sit back and wonder “Is this for ever more?”

About a foolhardy florilegium

Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri, quo me cumque rapit tempestas, deferor hospes.
