No Glory

I was motivate to right this poem to reflect the injustice of war and that all to often it is the uneducated and or poor. Committed by wealthy power brokers to make sacrifice fighting in foreign wars often to the benefit of the very same power brokers.

No glory found and no guilt ever apportioned

For those guiding young men to wars uncautioned,

The chosen so often of colour, unlearned or the piss poor.

But true heroes they’ll be if they do win by force majeure.

 

No glory found and no guilt ever apportioned

For those guiding young men to wars uncautioned,

Ticker tape parades and medals for those making it home,

For the rest, your name on a glorious dome.  

 

No glory found and no guilt ever apportioned

For those guiding young men to wars uncautioned,

But see those with the wealth they do not give a toss

Knowing their greedy interests will not turn a loss.

 

No glory found and no guilt ever apportioned

For those guiding young men to wars uncautioned,

Not their sons to die in some foreign land

But here they come marching so strike up the band.

No glory found, and no guilt ever apportioned

For those guiding young men to wars uncautioned.

No Glory
