War Has Consequences

In Babylon the Hanging Gardens
were so beautiful
one of a kind
and so beautiful.

People from all the world
came to see them
and when they were destroyed
the universe wept.

Beauty can still be found.

Before war
there were things of such beauty.
War has consequences.
People die in war and been hurt
by war and
the last of it
war destroys.
