Title is self-explanatory. Acrostic form
Horrific Days of War

Honor is replaced with savagery and barbarism,
Operating under the guise of patriotism.
Reaching the earth's surface from sea to sea,
Reddening the ground with blood from many.
Intake, then exodus of countless lost souls,
Failing to find reasons for the whole~
Intense taking of life; kill or be killed with veracity!
Competing in world war to annihilate humanity.

Murder! Death! Kill!

Downwind of the bombs bursting in air,
Arid breaths in-taking the awful bare~
Yarns of every war, filled with the dead and maimed.
Slicing through the heart of what we call sane.

Murder! Death! Kill!

Only those who don't fight it, want to continue;
Fathers of war, the patriarchal 'pigs' still ensue~

Murder! Death! Kill!

War on every living species.
Answer no one to appease,
Repeat human history in greed.

Murder! Death! Kill!

Horrific Days of War

Inspired by Dave Mathews Band "Stand Up" CD lyrics to the song 'Everybody Wake Up':

"Our finest hour arrives
See the pig dressed in his finest fine
The believers stand behind him and smile
As the day lights up with fire

Everybody wake up
If you're living with your eyes closed
See the man with a bomb in his hand
Everybody wake up"
