    War


    We fight
    to be right

    We kill
    Impose our will

    We die
    and just sigh

    We lose
    Never choose

    We win
    Others sin

    We write
    of our might

    We waste
    Never faced

    We war
    What for?

    So the rich can get richer and the poor can get poorer. Or so I've been told.

      Nice answer but often wealth is destroyed so war is if nothing else inefficient

    War is a tedious way to keep the economy humming, but it is proven to be successful. Nice write Pp!

    You have pared down the poetic line to the barest essentials, Parkinsonspoet. By comparison, a haiku seems verbose, and a ha'sonnet is impossibly long-winded.

    Packs a punch, as it should.

      Yes sparse was the aim we embellish war far to much

    One of your better poems I think. Very well-written, good sequence with an excellent compilation of various ways war comes about.
