to war

to war to war
to go to die
to war to war
to grieve and cry
to war we go
to set things right
to death we go
to go in fright
to die in vain
to shed fallow blood
to pour refrain
to weep and mourn
to plow the grave
to widowed scorn
to rend the soul
to even the score
to war to war
to war to war

Very interesting how you used a sort of child's rhyme cadence with such a gut wrenching subject. Well done.

Thanks for the visit and the comment. Just hope the cadence wakes us up instead of lulling us to sleep.
