War Drums (Poem)

I hear them

I hear them yelling

I hear them screaming


On their war drums

"Bomb them"

"They are a threat"

"Global security is at risk"

The drums are beating

They are beating faster and stronger

Than ever before

I hear them


Yelling for bombings

Yelling for invasion

Yelling for actions

But, the real question is this:

Do they understand what they are saying?

They are yelling

Yelling for more death, more bloodshed, more pain

They argue for bombings, for invasions,

But they fail to realize how many people will die

How many innocent people, how many soldiers will die

First they went into the Graveyard

On a whim

Pre-planned and with no evidence

Linking the victim to the crime 

Without stopping they went

To the Oil Fields

Lies served as their bombs, Deception, their artillery, Propaganda, their bullets

And rained hell, but not just on the people, on the soldiers as well

Yet, they still beat the war drums

Pleading for more tears, more destruction, more suicides

I pray for this not to happen

But I can still hear them screaming
