For A Warring World

Today the world needs no artillery
For wreaking havoc on life and nature.
Rockets, missiles, tanks, launchers
Are the weapons
Of tyrants,
Bred in warring camps;
They must be shunned and demolished
For fostering a cordial sense
Of brotherhood.

Love, humanity and cooperation must
Take a leading role
For dousing the flares
Of communal clashes and riots,
For rousing the feeling
Of being humane,
For God to live in peaceful minds.

War can only mar, not anything make
Let it rest in grave for humanity’s sake.

    Commendable thoughts . In fact even rockets and missiles are fast being replaced by chemical and biological weapons.
