THE SPOILS OF WAR


Wars were fought in days of yore,

Wars have been fought forevermore.

Wars take money and wars take life,

Wars are the cause of terrible strife.

Jealously and greed make people want to fight,

Thinking that war will decide who is wrong and who is right.

After leaving many good people bereft,

It’s less about who’s right and more about who’s left.

About authorjim

I grew up in the country near a small Montana town, I have spent a lot of time in the outdoors, working, fishing, hunting and camping but have always been interested in mechanical and electrical things. Most of my life has been spent in the use, care and repair of things mechanical, electrical an electronic. After being retired for several years, I began writing and published my first novel at the age of 79. Now, at the age of 82, I have recently published my fourth noveland it is available from me or from the pulisher or book distributor.
