War Sense

Posted to Action Poetry

Do you hear
the missiles
screaming death?

Do you smell
the aftermath
of bodies rotting?

Do you taste
the decay
of the victims?

Do you feel
the madness
taking over?

Do you see
the fear
in eyes of loss?

Do you sense
the futility
of such wars?

Won't you realize
this machine zaps
your energies -

leaving you
weak & impotent
for making Love?
