Poet 9: aryst0krat

The Escalation of Conflict

Crack slam!
Knocked out
Fist swung
Face hit

Last one
On top

Cling and clang!
Swinging swords
Taking lives
Giving blood

War is here
A stalemate
No one wins
Only Death

Bullets and noise
Faceless killers
Stealing your soul

Newer weapons
Same old problems
Always fighting
Never to end

What's that screeching sound!
Atom bombs, missiles
Further from victims
Closer to The End

Better at killing
Fail at making peace
War keeps evolving
But humans have stopped 

The End
