Poem on War

Are wars really won and at what cost?

One side gains control but what about all the people lost.

Both sides have lists of the slain

And lists of people I perpetual pain

Both sides of lands stripped bare

That will take many years to repair

So why do we see war as a cure?

When it makes both sides more poor

There can be many answers to a dispute

Both sides should talk long and hard before they decide to shoot

Ken Jones, Katikati.
