Song Against War
By : Ali Taha Alnobani

© 2011 by Ali Taha Alnobani
Helicopters were over us
Noise and fuss
Yesterday with orchestra
And today in battle
My life seems like a shuttle
The violin that was touching my neck
Became today a rifle
The tune of dancing and love
Just now became blood and pus
Noise and fuss
And now behind a tree
Trying to press on the trigger
Feeling my daughter Julie
Calling me
Don't shoot
Don't shoot
Oh my God
Is this a rifle
Or a violin!!

Heart rendering telling of a classic war syndrome, Ali. It's such a shame humanity feels the need to battle it out with one another. The soldiers themselves suffer indescribable pain, but the innocent ones left behind are the real tragedy of war.

Good writing.
