Song of War
By Lady Glass

They're different from us
The devils of another world
They're different from us
And we can't possibly trust them

They're not the same as us
They're heathens from hell
They're so different from us
How could we ever trust them?

Hear the song of war
Dance to the beat of hatred
Listen to the singer of sadness
And cry her tears for us all

She sings another song
"You never listened to my song,
Never watched my dance
You can't understand

This dance of war is not for hatred
A cry for help, a cry for peace
It is all I know and all I feel
Never sang my song, never danced my dance"

They're different from us
The devils of another world
They're different from us
And we can't possibly trust them


Lady Glass's Note: I'm sorry for the strangeness of this poem and it's definitely not my best work (I am not just saying that to make my poetry sound better than it is, I'm saying it honestly). It was actually inspired by the Disney movie Pochahontas when the Indians and white men are preparing to go to war and Pochahontas sings something like, "How loud are the drums of war?"
