Back to the front lines they go
Why are they fighting again
Shrapnel shreds limbs
Bullets pierce there skin
Blood curdled screams echo
Until eternal silence sets in
Pawns in a rich game of chess..
Fathers and mothers died today
Children left all alone
Innocent civilians perish
Trying to survive in a war zone
And the war maching rages on
Out of control, harvesting souls
The poor lay massacred
As the wealthy feast with golden spoons
Todays best new poem was written by David Jefferson..
