Hip Hop Inspired Poem About War

by Prescott Johanson

A little ditty I wrote about the state of affairs in the world, or not, or just about war in genreral, shit, I don't know where this stuff comes from, but I hope you enjoy.

The home of the brave
is blinded by haze
while nuclear winter
blocks out the sun rays
I can't just sit back
afraid of the day
so I turn my home 
into a barricade
Before I'm taken out
by disease and gases
carried with the breeze
onto the masses
I'm seeing demons
Angels burning, screaming
everything is decieving
so I'm grieving
for the death of my mind
wonder if I got the time
to write this rhyme
Scriptures I deliver
scribbled in ink
Words sure to disturb
cause I'm on the brink
unable to think 
without a few drinks
and some grass to pass
it has to be 
the last thing I do
while I'm on my ass
but until then
I'll record some pages
of this strangeness
and wonder what 
the missiles range is
and can they contain it

	War, huh
	that's what we're living for
	have this but want some more
	protect kids
	and pray for yous	
	when the bombs drop	
	we hit the floor

Political minds
spout rediculous lies
I'm trying to find
a good rock to hide behind
Fine, fuck it
I'll just duck quick
we didn't ask for this
but tough shit
When the chemicals spray
just tuck and zip
all you terrorists
can suck a dick
sick and twisted
killing fills your wish list
man to man
you get your ass kicked
so you prey on innocent
like a punk bitch
God never asked you
to kill in his name
admit it, ya'll just maim
chasing fame
exploit our system 
it's the reason you kill?
but ya'll are misled
misjudge our will
I don't believe in war
until bloods on my steps
then it's what I live for
protecting what's left
send you straight to hell
stung with regret
until the bell rings
bringing my last breath

	War, huh
	that's what we're living for
	have this but want some more
	protect kids
	and pray for yous	
	when the bombs drop	
	we hit the floor

Missiles shooting
at innocent people
polluting and looting
kill for your steeple (Let's do this)
Sifting through the remains
of arms, legs and brains
target was maimed
hard hit, but largely contained
bulldozing homes
grabbing em by the throat
adding fuel to the fire
taking people's hope (I know)
Obsession with weapons
chemical, nuclear testing
would come back to get us
I'm stressing, guessing
there's not a pretty end
when men, women and sin
send a bomb strapped to a kid
kill some innocent (shit)
I'm seeing demons
mixed with North Koreans
won't be long till Kim Jong bombs
can't we all have freedom?
Starving Africans, 12 yr old savages
catastrophe, life is passing them
filling children with killing
it doesn't have to be
Not if we treat
everybody as a brother
bring everyone peace
and as people we'll govern

	War, huh
	that's what we're living for
	have this but want some more
	protect kids
	and pray for yous	
	when the bombs drop	
	we hit the floor
