Is it War, or visit
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009


Do you have the key to the locked door
Or will it be shut forever
Do you try to flee from the boxed war
Or will it lift you up forever

Do you have a road to move forward on
Or will you keep walking forever
Beside the unknown where you drop pawns
And think that the King is clever

He stands still and with commands kill
The soldiers, the striders, the horses
All they stole in compact thrill
In short this is - what war is

And it will be as it is
And it was as it always was
A costly price to pay for
Nothing worth the lot
