SHIT HAPPENS

Some shit is always happening.
We cannot seem to get along.
This whole thing is maddening.
There is always something wrong.

There always has to be a war,
With bombs or sticks and stones.
Seems by now we’d war no more,
For the sake of our own bones.

After millions of years,
Mankind should have learned.
After billions of tears,
The killing should be spurned.

The offerings are burning,
Our gods condone war.
We need to start learning,
What the hell is war for?
