Hollow Word!

Peace surely is but a hollow word

millions of voices never heard

such pain etched on blank faces

forced to move to many places

from their homelands removed

by unknown authorities approved

ever-increasing people displaced

on the news their plight showcased

the growing masses seeking refuge

that in a short time is now a deluge

having nothing wanting a better life

but are met with simmering strife!

a crisis countries are unable to cope

society slips down a slimy rope!

Such pain

Silo!

The desert was flat you could never tell

that below where you stood

was a military bunker and missile silo

from a time years passed

built here on this lonely barren latitude

that had a bad attitude!

 

An everlasting reminder of mans ingenuity

negative approach to peace

of times that have gone but do still exist

creation of terror and destruction

yet for many this factor has disappeared

to die is no longer feared!

 

Thinking foolishly that all conflicts will end

is only in dreamers minds

always there simmering the spark of war

lay in wait in human culture

where somebody is ready to light the flame

so conflicts in history doth remain!

 

The silo is but one symbol of the bloody past

forever on humans the shadow cast!
