The Hunger of War
They’re piling up or splayed out on streets body after body civilians unarmed or ill advisedly armed in haste and heroism their meat is needed to feed the hunger. It’s piling up the rubble of lives in flames fed by weapons and more weapons the tears of the displaced are not enough to douse them so they leave, when they can, a low priority as there’s no meat on them the women, children and elderly. But the meaty men must stay to fight like soldiers to the death and be spat out with screaming shells and fear. And their screams die with them as victory comes closer it is said day after day it is said as the leaders scream “no surrender” victory will be theirs when the hunger is sated. More weapons more bodies more lives in flames to feed the insatiable hunger of war.
