Homework: Write A Poem Expressing The Horrors Of War

War is very bad
Oo, it makes me mad
When people go to war.
What's it all for?

War is not that nice
You should think twice
Before doing it
So don't ruin it.

You might think it's fun
To aim and shoot a gun
But if someone did it to you
You'd be dead too.

And people get upset
When one day they get
That letter from the C.O.
Saying their son's six foot below.

So I think it's best
If east and west
Got on with each other
And called each other "Brother".

Mike Stools (b. 1962)
