Mammad Araz - If There Were No War
If There Were No War

If there were no war,
we could build a bridge
between Earth and Mars
melting weapons in an open-hearth furnace.
If there were no war,
the harvest of a million years
could grow in one day.
Scientists could bring the moon
and stars to Earth.
The eyes of the general would say:
„I would be chairman in a small village
if there were no war! „
If there were no war,
we could avoid untimely deaths
and our hair would grey when it was time.
If there were no war,
we would face
neither grief, nor parting.
If there were no war,
the bullets of mankind would be our words,
and the main word of mankind would be love.
