Celebration of War

The war is over the story has changed another item on the news

What was it for he wonders sitting alone his life crippled and blue

He remembers the hysteria the patriotic call and all their cheers

Go buddy we are all behind you we’ll support you in all you do

That was a long day but it’s forgotten now and world has moved on

He taps his fingers they play out a tune only part of him that moves

The day they declared war day his life ended and his innocence too

War stories we watch on TV the celebration of death renewed again

But he’s not alone the hospital is full of victims and his friends

In the fields of war there are memories in his head he can’t loose

He still sees the faces the adrenalin still pumps memory is cruel

The legacy of war burnt inside him the example we pass children

War the destruction of love and in the end changes nothing at all.

 

The celebration of war, prefer to remember the good that we do, amen.
