WAR is Good

what is it good for..
War among-st earthlings
is good
death of a living body
makes it clear
with out any doubt, some change must come about
through pain and fear

War is good
because it brings about something
 a variation
of old ideas
transformed into
 what today has to offer

according to who is willing to eliminate the most who disagree
War is good war is good
because war changes everything

The trick is to raise their babies
according to what the victor's see
War is good for change
war is good for exchange
war is good, war is good

war is good for human beings
war is good for expansion
war is good for vanity
war like
the idea of peace is a moment in time
connected to eternity

The maker made opposites
so to struggle in this form
is divine

what is it good for.. everything

War will continue
so long as mankind


right or wrong genius or fool
war is part of the change
always coming

and now you know
War is good for something

Author's Notes/Comments: 

War is good my friends.  It aids in brining about the only true constant.


This has been performed in public and is alway confrontational/combative even for those who denounce that war is good for anything but death.  True this is, but War is necessary to exterminate large swaths/pleatheras of view in a quest to bring about a different point of view.  Smoothing the losers views.  Look at the US.  It used to be full of Native American Indians, but manifest Destiny proved to be over-powering.  Look around the world and to the past, and see the kicked ass.  Ass- meaning death, often genecide.  True and usually long lasting change comes about in this way.

This I Must Estimate

This I Must Estimate  by Paradox


The most valuable thing any human posses

The most precious thing every human has all over the world

And should have more of, or not, I don’t know,

It’s a gift and a curse

It’s the eternal friend and sometimes enemy

It’s the long wait, it’s the, it went by to fast

It’s not your momma or a good piece you had

It’s not the love you have or the love you lost

It’s not that lesson learned

Or that invest you sought, and hopefully into it you bought

It’s God given To the rich and the poor

To the overzealous church go’er , and the trick turning whore

To all the young, to all the old

The most valuable thing to any human on this whole entire globe

Yeah you know what it is


Within the essence of your being

It was here from the start, it will be here when you are gone

It will be here when the sun sucks earth and this system implodes into

What some believe and call a black hole

That’s right you know what it is

The most precious thing to man

It’s not the spark from the flame

It’s not sliced bread or the wheel

It’s the most precious thing

That to often its killed

By the multitudes for there are billions of we, man kind

We murder it daily, readily with ease

And many without reason

It’s the most precious thing of any season


That’s right you know what it is

So there’s no need to say

Use it to your advantage in work and play

Plan well, plan to excel

Make a plan, and work that plan well

Its up to you what you do, your fate is your own

Know the importance, the value,

the worth Of this most precious thing, you posses

and you posses until you are gone

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Do you know what the most precious thing man has, that is not a physical possesion?  UUUUUUUUUUGH??? IT's in the title.  The title is a mini riddle..
