There is a madness in the air

I’m ever grateful I’m not there

What is it that these people seek

For all this havoc that they reek.

Our world is drowning all around

With anger that does most confound

If someone doesn’t take the lead

Responding with the proper speed

Who is it that will save this place

And our whole nation from disgrace ?

I’ve seen the troops in battle dress

They make me proud I must confess

I wish they were but dressing-up

To partake of sweet valour’s  cup

Instead of battling someone’s cause

While fighting in these futile wars.

There is no break nor any end

The fracas leaves no untouched friend

There’s no peace found to fill the air

We’ve only distress everywhere.

The saddest part we must accept

We’ve done our job and are bereft !

The madness of war in which great battles were waged

Where brave men fought and died as their armies engaged

And those heroes who lived to the end of the day

Will fairly attest we need an alternate way.

But wars aren’t parried between equals as we

It’s usually twixt the enslaved and the free

Their combat continues while insanity reigns

Perhaps with our prayers we can salvage remains.
