Damn you farmers of war
when you broadcast your seed
stay you think for a while
the foul fruit of your deed
think of who reaps the harvest
this year and the next
and who pays the toll
for your deadly bequest

bloody plowmen of hate
count your soldiers each day
and then count your women and children
and pray
count their arms and their legs
this year and the next
count you well
count the toll
of your deadly bequest

eeny meeny miney mo
catch a ****** by the toe
dont walk the fields
dont dare to go
teach the children
teach them so
eeny meeny miney mo
O.U.T. spells out

And the flowers in the field
when the blast tears the air?
A sunflower may not lose
its proud and high head
but the sweet lowly rose
will be rendered apart
and its delicate petals
lay scattered and dead

and you in the west
your hands are not clean
who sold the worlds armies
those deadly machines
uncharted that wait
in the miserable soil
for the innocent peasant
at innocent toil

eeny meeny miney mo
catch a ****** by the toe
don't walk the fields
don't dare to go
teach the children
teach them so
eeny meeny miney mo
O.U.T. spells out..




What sort of idiot edited out the "n" word? Not local, I'm sure. Mr Gates?
The whole point is spoiled.
[The BBC did the same actually]

Teach The Children
is this your own work Dwight?

I enjoy some poetry and can compile some ideas but would not know where to start to make it into appreciable poetry

Rule number one Saorise is use simple English. No frills. [NO reversals, NO Elizabethan crap]
No 2? Rhythm, ["meter" to some].
Rule 3? Go for it!
Yes.

Problem the forum language checker Dwight, it will asterisk out swear words etc.
