Artillery, bombs and missiles
Sound like whistles
As their thistles
Rip the life
Away from babies,
Mothers and children.
Blow up weapons,
Cities are built for people, not for bombardment. Shameful brutality is often called patriotic during war.
War’s off target. It shoots people but doesn’t combat hate.
There are two dead lines in war. Casualties is the line up of dead soldiers; collateral damage is the line up of dead civilians.
Soldiers are trained to be heartless about the cruelty they’re being compelled to commit. They’re trained to be cut off from their conscience, heartless to compassion, and brain dead to questioning orders.
Killing the killer who is ordering the killing seems more justified than killing the soldiers being forced to do the killer’s killing. People following Putin’s orders are causing much death, distress, and destruction.
People are living beings. They are the world’s most valuable and important inhabitants. Treat them well! For every dead person in war, some human being pushed the button or pulled the trigger that killed them.
Countries are just political organizations. A country is the highest human hierarchy that makes rules for people in a defined geographical area.
Every country is only temporary. People matter more than countries. Jesus died for people, not for a country.
