there is no victory in war

there is no victory in war
only guns, rifles, granades
trucks exploding
there are no parades
buildings toppled
roads strewn with debris
blood in the streets
a child searching for his mommy
the stench of death
buildings that burn
what is wrong with leaders
when will they learn
fatigued soldiers marching
while friends in body bags lay
waiting for a plane to come
they have no more to say
water supply depleted
electricity went out
generals claim victory
what is war all about
blood now lines pockets
of those who initiated war
lives lost one by one
and they still want more
no guilt for the battered bodies
lost limbs and broken bones
it doesn’t seem to matter
so many left without homes
there is no victory in war
only guns, rifles and granades
trucks exploding
there are no parades

there is no victory in war
