War and Pieces #Barathon

The leader of the world lived in his little bubble
Attacking those who didn’t agree with him
For his foes, he caused a whole lotta trouble,
By giving bombing orders on a mere whim;
The resulting war, made the world pretty grim
Deaths of innocents caused great uproar
While the world fell to pieces in blood and gore

This has been written as part of the Bar-A-Thon 2 Challenge prompt War and Pieces. I have also managed to use the theme ‘Seven‘ by using the poetic form Rime Royal which is a seven-line stanza with the rhyme scheme a/b/a/b/b/c/c/

    So true…Your poem reminds us how war brings so much bloodshed and gore to the fore! Lovely take on the prompt.

    Reminds me of the Guns n Roses song ‘Civil War’. Very well written. The first line says everything. Cheers

    Very well written, and unfortunately very representative of the times we live in.

    Why did this remind me of Hitler? Nice piece of work Sanch.

    That’s sad story about the pointless wars being fought which give nothing to the world except the broken pieces!
