a little girl once asked me
why does it rain red
why are some lies
filled with lead
why do we kill
when we have the power to live
no good answer
i could ever give
as a cloud of mushroom
blows up in the distance
radiation
blows through her hair
she was so pretty
such an angel
but we kill the messenger
because the message is so strong
we do dance with devils
we call them fancy names
make up reasons for our ways
but its our nature
to hurt
destroy
whats beautiful
what brings joy
we would love to be gods
we already judge
halfway there
so sad were unwilling
to take the final plunge
to mercy, for peace
war is hell
there lies no release..

Excellent Jackel! A perfect description that
the tragedies of war play on the innocent.

give one thing more: a grateful heart.
