Life During War Time*

by Hussein

Newborn babies still cry while Poets and Philosophers ask the eternal question-why? Politicians to us still lie while starry eyed lovers gaze at each other and sigh 605 people year to date here are dead that's what the Channel 7 Reporter said More folks like lambs to the slaughter will be led to keep the "Legion" fed I pray for an invention from the divine because here in Chicago it's-"Life During War Time" ************ *Kudos and Credit to the Talking Heads and their song "Life During War Time" for the title and inspiration of this poem.
