War Zone

War Zone

War zone, humanity is gone,
Broken hearts and frozen minds,
Bonds of kindness lost their glue,
Fighting skies, men of arms, blocked the rescue.

Architecture of generation, demolished by invasion,
Cruel weapons splashing blood, a situation of devastation,
Reign of terror ignored cries of innocence,
War zone, result of thoughts beyond sense.
Clouds of fear, no sign of cheer,
Tragic miseries, no one to hear,
No place to hide when bombs blast near,
Hopeful men waited, hatred to clear.

Burning human rage, showing piles of wreckage,
Empathy and Compassion locked up in cage,
War zone shattered dreams of future age,
Selfish urge, made to forget, lessons from history page.

Hard to Imagine the height of fight,
Should I say, mighty is always right,
War impacts all, in this tiny earth bubble,
My weeping thoughts narrated worldly trouble.

    Why Wars and pandemics in the first place ? Croatian MEP Mislav Kolakušić Drops Truth Bombs, Explaining the Real Reason for Rising Gas Prices (in EU parliament)... "Energy prices rarely and almost never correspond to their production price... They mostly depend on geopolitics and wars... Just as false and true pandemics bring huge profits to the pharmaceutical industry, wars bring huge profits to the energy industry. So it will be today and so it will be forever because huge profits are the real purpose of wars."
