BALLISTIC MISSILE

You sleep in your silo day and night
Your systems ready for the flight
You have no conscious no heart no soul
You do not know the death you toll
You have no brain no mouth to say
You have no sage or god to pray
Your warheads primed for the fight
You do not know wrong from right
And as the minutes tick away
We await the deadly day
And when you wake the world will quake
And when you fly a race will die
So go to sleep for a thousand years
We all want peace and no more tears

actually i'd prefer you didn't end with a bang, me either for that matter. ok, ok, i must say that i really, really like this poem. the total dis-anthropomorphizing of ballistics in tubes, let alone in general(s) is great. Very nice write dude....if i may call you that Felix. ;-)

Hi, fleixxxx,
We all want peace and no more tears is certainly something to write home about! May the ballistic missiles stay in their silos day and night. Peace! Amen!

Titles effect the poem...because sometimes you track straight past....but we must all learn to check in and read....
I was pleasantly surprised....enjoyed your write, and the sincerity....good one...felixxxxx....Niahangel peace peace

a very dark thought felix, but one that we live with. (my older sister can be a bit like this aswell!) i like to believe these missiles will never be deployed...blues
