The Symphony of War

The Symphony of War

Drums rouse the inner sanctum
Violins pray the arrival of the judging angels
Trumpets herald the demons of hell
Bagpipes squeeze the last ounce of human misery

Symbols clash as the first warrior falls
Harps strum a mighty applause
The flute makes merry the next advance
An angry Bass plays the closing chord

Ritual blood blissfully addicted to the hardened soil
Crimson blades of grass wither with the dying sun
Earth’s underground quarry drowns in perpetual sorrow
Stench nourishes the appetite of the omnipresent evil

A jubilant crowd rings applause to the abhorrent spectacle
Pale-faced Generals salute the faceless assembly
Presidents and Prime Ministers chuckle within their ghostly galleries
Time now brings us to the first inter-mission.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
