WAR

WAR

You came like a whirlwind

Sweeping and blowing all as you came

You took us all by surprise

Goring our dreams, we watched them wither

Leaving us desolate

With maidens defiled, the dignity exchanged

The children were homeless, the best luck most could get

As others were soldiers, their blood watered the earth

Mothers welcomed widowhood, the man of the hour

They said you would bring peace with sanity as incentive

But sorrow in abundance was all we could count

With the stain and stench darkness was lord

You enriched a few pockets

While many glowed in penury

And when you were gone

We staggered to civilization

An unending walk to freedom began

In counting our costs

All gained nothing

For when you were gone

The obscure was obvious

No Victor no Vanquished.
