WRITTEN ON THE EVE OF ANOTHER WAR
It’s not the powermongers in their offices,
in their churches, guards surrounding them,
sending bombs to drop in drone strikes,
exploding cars in marketplaces,
setting the snake of vengeance loose
that hisses poison through the world.
It isn’t them, it’s us,
our blind obedience in every country.
Without us not a drop of blood would fall.We maim the children
