The War to end them all started 100 years ago today
And as history has told it didn’t turn out that way
Power crazed blokes are still ordering the barely mature
To kill other ones and scrape through spiritual manure
Main difference now seems to be in the guise of civilian death
‘Accidental’ fuck ups and land grabs still leave families bereft
While nation states and economies still cling to the truth of ‘War begats money’,
We’re a hell of a long way off from milk and honey.
