World War 1

Millions of Casualties, For What?


Wars are red

for obvious reasons

Like the Bloodshed

and commitment of treason

On the shoulders head

the sides aren't always even

When they're all dead

people at home cry

thinking of their lost ones

hoping to have one last night

to spend with their sons

it started off with one problem

now everyone on the blocks got em'

soldiers think of their friends before the enemy shot em'

and the freedom before they got blocked in

hopefully their sacrifices would supply thir country a win

The Government

This beautiful country of ours

the way the government controls it

the stripes and the stars

how it makes us think we must fight

the rights that men have died to protect

over no true reason

the women and men who have broke their necks

just millions of deaths

to protect people from recklessness

wars are like black holes

or so were told
