Addicted to War

There is a country that is addicted to endless wars
There are those that feed off blood and gore
Many of the people stand to attention and salute the flag
While the music plays, and the brainwashed brag

Sadly sons and daughters are killed, and some are maimed
Obeying orders from the warmongering insane
People in other countries get slaughtered as well
As the addicts of war create destruction and hell

Rubble strewn countries are victims of bombings
Millions are dead because of the deadly droppings
Their lands are polluted with depleted uranium
And children are born with deformed bodies and craniums

Many soldiers come back from war with problems and PTSD
Is this the results of being addicts of war devotees?
Nothing good comes from killings, death and war
Perhaps the human mind can’t take all the horror

The carnage and corpses from all this madness
Is celebrated with flag waving, instead of sadness
The bands play the national anthem and the addicted salute
Are the participants in these gatherings the addicted hooked dupes?

Anybody talking about stopping the wars insanity
Is attacked by editorialists and warmongers profanity
They are the attack addicts, the war dogs that don’t fight
They are the propagandists that make wrongs into a right

This addiction to war has cost taxpayers trillions
And the killings and deaths of victims are in the millions
Yet, there are those that continue to promote these illegal wars
Should they be called war criminals and bloodthirsty whores?

Why would any sane persons celebrate killings and wars?
Or the hells their armies created on overseas shores
Are we seeing minds that are sick and afflicted?
By this damnable disease of the war addicted

“It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.” – Voltaire
