Red raining down on a field of death
This is where people come
To die
Why you ask?
Greed and Jealousy
Anger and Racism
Daddy's little girl
Mommy's darling boy
Both join the savage dance
In the red rain
On the field of death
The box was unlocked long ago
The monster released
To destroy
To kill
It cannot be tamed
It cannot be caught
And it's name

I've have officially gotten back into my poetry! Whoot! I hate wars. They're so pointless. We fight because this guy doesn't like the way that guy worships! Please. We as human beings are nothing more than animals and you know what we're the worst kind. WE kill for money, power, fame, or just out of hatred. A wolf kills to survive.
