Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
War, war and more war


by JP49

Our child
Born today
Our only one,
As father was killed
In this thing they call war
That rages, kills, day on day,
Whilst not resolving, what's it for?
Lives broken, lost, children fatherless,
Mothers, sweethearts left angry and grieving.
