Ruing the day





At a loss


Are we disgruntled today
are we gasping
and wheezing at a loss
for breath
cursing and ruing the day
the gas took our
life away
but did not cause
our death

the gas took our life away but did not cause death....yikes dude...grisly...and while related to war i think it makes a nice statement too on our dependence on oil...

Hmm. I could think on those words quite a long time. This 'taking of life' you mention is multi-faceted. I like this poem.
