Why does peace continue to
elude mankind? It seems
obvious that killing never
led to peace. It seems incongruous
to have “peace-keeping” soldiers.
I also have a hard time with
guilt-masking terms like
Let’s tell it like it is.
I want your land, your oil.
I want power, money and more.
Submit to me or I will bomb
your homes, hospitals, schools,
museums, places of worship.
I will rape your mother, wife,
daughter and sister. And when
I have sucked your bones dry,
I will offer you peace. My tanks
will line your streets and I will
rebuild some of what I have destroyed
at a profit that will leave you forever
in my debt. And I will tell everyone
how just and mighty I am.
Am I the only one who see war
this way? God help us all!
