"War Is Hell!" (by Joe DiMino)

"War is hell!"
Talk of understatement-
at least in hell
the choice is always easy
from a list of countless evils
and to be wrong is correct....

But war is complicated-
just to protect our sanity
we look for good
where there isn't any,
and try to perform
a ray of light
with a cast cloaked in darkness
and all their props
weeping blood-

What a buffet
for sanctimonious, bloated, critics
and opportunist politicians....
