War
I wonder if war would be so frequent,
If those declaring such evil on another,
Had to face it head on,
Would presidents, ministers and chancellors,
Be more open to discussion,
If it were their leg that risks the landmine,
Their friends that fell to the I.E.D,
Their lives were the ones on the line,
Alas only a thought experiment,
Cowards tend to create conflict and flee,
Sending other to do their ***** work,
Then too afraid to look them in the eye,
The eye that saw unimaginable pain,
Unimaginable suffering,
Unimaginable evil,
Yet,
The world leader is the reason,
Those unimaginable things,
Still reflect in their eye.
