But Why?

 

But why do people go to war?
Is what my Joey said to me.
It was a question perfect for
When I was walking by the sea.

I was alone to contemplate
But why do people go to war?.
My son inside to patient wait
Five years ago when he was born.

His dad had fallen on the shore,
The cry of gulls as battle raged.
But why do people go to war?
There was no marker for a grave.

I knelt to pray and told my son
Just what his dad had said before
He left “to fight for everyone”.
But why do people go to war?
