The Last War

He remembered war as a child seemed as common and normal for adults as any other business.  There were the soldiers, the workers and the suits, the children imitated all in their play, but mostly they pretended killing eachother.  The poets father, he was a worker, and when asked of war replied  ” We fight for freedom, While others fight for power.  We as a people should be governed by the majority, it is called democracy.  Democracy is an ancient greek word best translated by a man called Abraham Lincoln who said ” A government of the people, by the people, for the people.”  Some times we forget the way we should live and fall into minority rule.  We let a small group of people so rich they are detached from the people govern the peoples lives. The people aspire to be like them, pretend to be rich too, and desire to detach from their neighbors placing value on dollars instead of sense.  People begin to lust for power and money so much they are willing to kill for both not realizing there are only so many of us and a ruler sitting on a throne of blood has no subjects to rule.  There are times aswell! that we do remember as a people how to live as people.  When leaders rule with love people will fight to the end with a faith for a better world and in that world there is no war my son.”  The poet asked his father to teach him his trade.  As he learned and lived he could see all around him how people misplaced successes with money and separated them selves accordingly.
