War is all around us…
Do you see it?
Are you in it?
What will you do about it?

We look around but can’t see…
`That’s because it’s done by foreign means.
It’s a war we all fight,
Just to make ends meet.

In schools,
At jobs,
In public,
Were all trying to survive.

The greatest battles aren’t solo…
They are done in teams.
Stand as one body,
Let’s be on humanities team.

Jack C. Boeve

Jack Boeve is a new age poet with an old style twist. He Started writing for fun in 7th grade But didn't start posting his work until late 2020. On occasions he goes by the alias "John Dow" in order to stay hidden if he doesn't want recognition, but on the contrary he will also give some hints on how to find him if you desire to speak with him. His poems speak of his heart but some are made for the reader to think on. more…
