Need Brainstormers

I'm trying to complete a chapbook of medieval riddle based poems concerning war and the politics surrounding war, but I've run out of topics!

So far:
  • Revenge
  • Privilege
  • Gravestone
  • Suicide Bomber
  • Grass
  • Death
  • Medal
  • Microphone
  • Dust

What am I not thinking of? Help me out here folks.

God, water, words, ideas

Thanks for the suggestions. I want to do "God" in this book, I really do, but it's just too big to tackle. The others might work, especially "water". Also, and I can't believe I didn't think of this but your suggestion of "water" prompted it--"oil"! So thank you for getting my brain churning again.

Re: Bone...
I've thought about that. And maybe "corpse," too, but I feel like I've touched on some of those themes in "Death" and "Medal" already. Obviously, they bear repeating, though, because what is war if not the accumulation of bodies.

Land, fire, betrayal, fear, dog tags, Gold Star (although "Gold Star" might not have any meaning for those born much after WWII)
