What’s war about? Wipeout!

War's completely unfair.
The people who start it
Send some people to kill
While they stay in safety.
Some people are killed.
Some lose family members.
Many just stay home.
And watch it on the news.
Some even make money on it.

Does any country have an honored grave for “the unknown civilian” murdered in war? Civilian lives matter!

War’s about:

Wiping out
All
Resistance.

War’s about a nation’s leader resorting to ordering violence and the nation’s soldiers going along with that one man’s decision.

War’s about bombs, bullets, blood, blasted bodies, and broken hearts.

War’s about people competing to put each other to death in the most violent and cruel ways imaginable.

War’s about intentionally inflicted pain, death, suffering, terror, horror, brutality, cruelty, evil, and destruction.

War-makers
Are life-takers,
Piling bodies
On dead end
Streets.

Perhaps solders should be
Free to decide
Which side is right
And to switch
From side to side.

By calling a nation an enemy, a leader makes soldiers feel justified in following his inhumanity.

Bombing cities isn’t combat. It’s mass murder!

The most important orders are often the most ignored and disobeyed–the orders of the human conscience.

Enemy lives matter. Calling a nation an enemy doesn’t devalue the lives of its citizens.

No one sees the soldiers fighting against them as heroes.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
