Celebrating the Poetry of Peace


TO WAR
by John Mills

He said it once.
It's a crusade.
Then his handlers made him stop,
Thinking the word might alarm
Muslims and others attuned
To religious conflict
And warring.

I thought it was an oil war
He wanted.
To support his business friends
And satisfy our appetite.

But now I see:
He charges "Evil"
As a Christian judgement,
Adding religious purpose
To his quest.

None of this is missed by those we will attack.
They have generations
Of experience in
Religious warring.

We are over our heads
And wrong besides.
I say "we" because
He won't do the fighting.

 

John Mills is a potter in Nashville, IN


We must allow ourselves the joy of loving through life more than we fear our living.
T.B. Stone
