The Writers Voice
The World's Favourite Literary Website



Claire Randal

Is war the best and only solution?
When war takes hope and light from every day.
Why can only war bring resolution?
Why is war the only possible way?

Why couldn't we wait for U.N assent?
Were we so anxious to get straight to war?
We kill our allies despite our intent
and greet outside voices with a closed door.

Does patriotism really imply,
that we must follow our leaders blindy and,
be against what we are really for, why?
What does democracy mean in this land?

That we're free to disagree and still be,
part of a nation with liberty.
