The Phantom (zerosummations) | 367 comments ((I am so totally writing a sonnet:
Inspiration =
1) It's in rhyme, which can be interpreted to symbolise harmony, which there is little of in war
2) A sonnet is traditionally about love, which there is also little of in war.
3) I felt like it.

Therefore my use of form to mock the ideas of warfare shall surely, along with my not inconsiderable knowledge of the subject, bring me victory!))

message 37: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 367 comments Ought we speak of war with fellow beings?
They are as true to their values as we.
Who look upon the void chaos seeing.
What right have we to judge what they may be?

What if we were the foe? Our lives the blight?
Then what would you think of/our achievements?
Is our elegance invented? Or the sun’s light
Not for human eyes but new allegiance?

How many die? When man at last goes to war?
Too many by far. Why then, do we kill?
And with what right can we kill; what new law
Have we made to see man slaughter yet still.

So how can we this killing justify?
We can not, e’en when war is nigh.

((It's not very good, but I wanted to write a sonnet so...))


ᑕᗢᗝᒪḰᓮᖙᖇᗢჯ123 ☆*・゜゚・*\(^O^)/*・゜゚・*☆ Cool (coolkidrox123) | 261 comments the world of war
that tears down the forts
of homes both friendly and foe.

Guns, sounds, bangs, roars.
there is no end to the terror caused by war.

What can we do?
to bring peace to this doom?
the bombs that destroy, the guns that reap souls. The familys that are torn.

Who could stop?
the limbs from being shot, the minds being destroyed.
by this never ending war.

All the dead.
All the sorrow.
All the tears.
All the blood.
why is there war?
When we are all made by god?
With the same mind, heart and soul?
I do not know
because there is no reason for war.





eh..ya know..casually takeing out some trash and putting it up here to make it look new? idk made this on the spot. ^^

Under the knife
Shone by the light
Under the gun
Lifting the tons of weight off my tongue
Raising the mace
Letting down the drawbridge
Picking up the pace
Down with the strife
Down with the hate
Taking my chance with the Fates
Under the knife
Under the gun
Back to life
Open the gates
Down with the strife
Down with the hate
No more second rate
Shone by the light
Erasing the blight
Onward with the fight!
Cast out the shadows
Raise the gallows
Back to life
Under the knife
Under the gun
Open the sun
Onward with the fight!
