War

We call the battlefield a “Theater”
To hide our travesties beneath
Masques, charades, and clever dance.
We call excessive spending
Research and development;
Future planning for trivial affairs.
But Uncle Sam will claim
The critics to be mad
“It’s all propaganda
Every country’s best interest
I assure you all, we demand”
They instruct, we follow.
Blindfolded sacks who
Trust the politicians
Fallacious grins.
Inaction, we perfect.
We groan and moan,
And seem to forget
That “We the People”
Contain leverage unrivaled
By any; be it nuclear, lead or
Dagger.
We the People
Contain the mightiest power:
Speech.
Use it!
