Remember those who first did wield the sword,
Were simple people; followers of the Lord.
They did not spare a mother or a child,
Who midst their slaughter were so foul defiled.
And Noah protested not nor even cried,
Saved himself while millions in horror died,
That all those born from Adam in the sea,
Were gone forever leaving a single family free.
Were all those people bad and awful folk?
The babies; children, what a bloody joke!
Yet they were killed by an angry God,
Leaving not a footprint where their feet had trod.
No! War won’t cease so long as there is life,
So long as peace is formed from human strife.
