Fussing And Fighting (standard:poetry, 93 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Jul 05 2010Views/Reads: 1514/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Arguing takes up so much of our time, it's a wonder we get anything done.

All the fighting 

Going nowhere 

All the struggle 

Many forebear 

Never knowing 

Where it leads us 

Does it solve 

Or merely grieve us 

Fighting on 

Condemn each other 

Did the boy 

Not have a mother 

Was the father 

Only present 

Was he missing 

Was he absent 

Who's to blame 

Who's expertise 

Will shed a light 

And needed breeze 

Clear the air 

Of every folly 

Smoke of war 

Does mask the volley 

Carry on 

The 'stainless' banner 

Clutch it tightly 

In all manner 

Never drop it 

Never stop 

Is it progress 

Should we not?
