War and peace and
Wedged between, tempers of greed;
Boundaries and borders and
Staked to claim, loss of reason;
Bullets and bomb and
Laid to waste, blood and bones crushed;
Heartache and loss and
Equations unsolved, all to nought

War and peace and
Lessons unlearned, to heartbeat of repetition;
War and peace and
Prize of destruction wanton;
War and peace and
Anguish for light in shroud of darkness

War and peace
Oh that light should
Fathom the grace to love
Least war and peace
Be forever at loggerheads
