A Simple Concept of War

War is but a battle between two men
Using their governments to cover them
Their troops go to battle at their command
Their warheads go off at a computers demand
Man’s life is at the fate of these two
And there’s not much that we can do
There ain’t no time to take cover
By the time we find out we’ve bombed each other
Why did man give the defense so much power?
The armies want to win not lose so we destroy each other
