A madman can bring disaster to human kind.
... Witness Hitler: his diseased brain so designed—                      
His captives could choose to live in camps like swine,                      
... Or join Wehrmacht in Blitzkrieg o’er border lines.                            
He ranted: “Better genes ‘gainst all, we will deploy.”                      
... “Rail against us and your nation will be destroyed.”   

A world of soldiers fought—oft their end came quickly.                 
... But many who survived died so very slowly—                    
The armless, the blind, the legless, the insane.                                   
... And those spared of bullet holes till home they came—       
Hoping to relieve their mental battle pain;                                         
... Thinking God could NEVER exact war again.

They brought back peace to a world much depraved.                  
... Now, most have passed, but their glory will never fade.    
They’ve joined combat brothers in a peaceful celestial cell!              
... Heroic soldiers who drove Lucifer back into hell

Funny how people like Hitler who always promise to destroy us end up destroyed themselves. Unfortunately in the process a high price must be paid from both sides. You have captured that very effectively.

Amen, Regis. The haunting and sad stories of war should never be forgotten. May God bless you every day of your life.

Well done my friend, for all though tis folly and unreal to expect that man will never rage war again...let us hope that when he does it is for the right reasons and their are right reasons sometimes.
