Civilized conduct

I was watching the movie "The Patroit"
The word that came to me was "civilized"
There were two men discussing terms of warfare
through manners their hostility disguised!

In the midst of this tense discussion
it wandered to a nature unmilitary
it concerned some personal belongings
agreed to be returned in all sincerity!

It's most definitely an age gone by
We've since have learnt to misbehave
Wars have become such complicated business
and millions resting quietly in their grave

We fight for things inconsequential
and now just kill with impunity
Human life is only collateral
just fodder for more atrocities

The End
