The mighty make war

Under the guise of freedom

Oil, land and power

All ulterior motives

Peace now seems an illusion

For Weekly Tanka Challenge 


War is only a cowardly escape from the problems of peace – Thomas Mann
War is delightful to those who have had no experience of it – Desiderius Erasmus
We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools – Martin Luther King Jr.
