The Bad Side of War

War! What a name
Thou turneth a loved one into a mare corpse
Thou bringeth death near everyman
Thou leaveth no home and food for the survivals

Oh! People of the world
Thou killeth humans as though they were ants
Thy hearts are full of revenge, anger
Hatred and bitterness against thy brother
Trying to show thy combative strength in wars
Why not make peace and be thy brother’s keeper

Oh! People of the world
Thou roareth like a hungry lion
Thou fighteth with anger roaring so high
Thou turneth the dust of the earth to fire against thy brother

Oh! People of the world
Change from your inhuman acts
Treat one another as blood brothers
And this world would be a better place
No more wars and crimes.
