The Causalities of War

Here they go again

Words thrown at each other

Rarely do they duck

But take the hit full on

He said

She said

Hurting each other

With venomous lies

The ones who

Wlll lose

At the outcome

Of this fight

Sit upstairs

Blankets over their heads

And tears on their cheeks

Kids listen

Kids hear

Kids learn

Show them a path

With kindness

Not malice

Remove the hate

And restore love

Be gentle with them

As they are the future
