We're not pro-war; we're not necessarily anti-war either. We're just here to try and understand a little bit about the impact it has on peoples' lives, and why it inspires such powerful expressions of creativity.
Members are welcome and encouraged to post poetry and song lyrics related to war or conflict from any era. Historical links are appreciated.
Please cite the poet's name if known, so it can be listed with the title in the Table of Contents.
Please use Livejournal's default font, and only <lj-cut> posts longer than 80 lines, or containing multiple images or embedded videos.
A warning and cut for particularly graphic imagery or foul language is appreciated.
This community is not a platform for anyone's political agenda.
Please post no more than twice a day.
Poems are filed in Memories by Poet (or Anonymous) and by Conflict (or Unspecified.) You can also search for poets by name in the tags. Posts with videos are listed under the tag 'a music video'.
