The War Works Hard! by Dunya Mikhail

How magnificent the war is!


How eager


and efficient!


Early in the morning


it wakes up the sirens


and dispatches ambulances


to various places


swings corpses through the air


rolls stretchers to the wounded


summons rain


from the eyes of mothers


digs into the earth


dislodging many things


from under the ruins...


Some are lifeless and glistening


others are pale and still throbbing...


It produces the most questions


in the minds of children


entertains the gods


by shooting fireworks and missiles


into the sky


sows mines in the fields


and reaps punctures and blisters


urges families to emigrate


stands beside the clergymen


as they curse the devil


(poor devil, he remains


with one hand in the searing fire)...


The war continues working, day and night.


It inspires tyrants


to deliver long speeches


awards medals to generals


and themes to poets


it contributes to the industry


of artificial limbs


provides food for flies


adds pages to the history books


achieves equality


between killer and killed


teaches lovers to write letters


accustoms young women to waiting


fills the newspapers


with articles and pictures


builds new houses


for the orphans


invigorates the coffin makers


gives grave diggers


a pat on the back


and paints a smile on the leader's face.


It works with unparalleled diligence!


Yet no one gives it


a word of praise.

Let me tell you what I did...

Oh I wish..

 

Not what you wanted, but we'll get around to that.

Hi, sorry if I am bothering you, but I am looking for someone to rp with and was wondering if you were interested?
Fluffin Levi Report | 06/25/2014 12:43 am
lol, aha. They doooooooo, I want to have as much fun as they do!
Aha, I haven't heard anything bad, either. If they did, the allkpop thing I'm following would have blown up over it,
like they did over a dating rumor in EXO or Super Junior.

But I'm in it for the music. -u-
They make me so happy. And Zico's baby face and intimidating rapping parts, aha.
I can't even say "turn right" right without screwing up. "Turn white.... .... I MEAN RIGHT. TURN RIGHT."

Omg, their video for Very Good is like, my fav 'cause they're such big nerds. Aha.
Jackpot's suppeerrr catchy, and the lyrics are pretty good, too. ;D
They actually stand out from the other korean bands, too, 'cause of the vocal talents of some of their singers. Strong dance moves, too.
Dance game is strong. -u-

Ehe, not really.

Lol thanks *hugs* my face...I will don't worry. It's after the holiday season so I am good for now

Exhaustion more then likely. Tiredness from work finally caught up to me and I got sick or I got a bug from one of my co-workers. That's usually how it works. Bleh I am fine though
