What's the Point of War?

What's with all the bullets
Flying through blood-red skies?
What's with all the shouting
And the wounded soldier's cries?

What's with all the hatred
Between those who once were friends?
What's with all the killing
And assasin's sticky ends?

What's with all the heartache
Of those who're left behind?
What's with all the torment
Of an old veteran's shattered mind?

What's with all the battles
On earth and sea and sky?
What's the point of war?
Does no-one wonder why?

The End
