1050 - Class Warfare

Mid-week Motif: War & Peace

Class Warfare

Wars are just a rich man’s game
And the stakes are rather high.
But the odds are stacked against the poor:
It’s not the rich that die.


Peace is what the public want;
To thrive and love and chat,
To enjoy the world in every way—
But where’s the cash in that?

  2. "Wars are just a rich man’s game" It is.

  3. Yes....ordinary folk are cannon fodder played on a chess board by the power brokers.
