Searching for Peace
You want it darker , we kill the flame
Everything is possible , yet all seems lost
Massacres too many to remember or number
Numbing down , habituated to this madness
To some unnamed war on innocent citizens
Milking the sacred cows to the edge of slavery
Until we can’t feel anymore, coming slyly
We don’t know the truths, they are hidden
Within the exalted lives of oligarchs in apocalyptic bunkers ?
Paranoid genocide , toxic fumes wafting through the cracks
Disintegrating abodes and bodies , no immunity
A new utopia, a shimmering mirage , you squint .
Insidious and idiopathic, this is universal coverage
Losing the game before we knew it was played.
If you want peace , prepare for war .
Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus
Igitur qui desiderat pacem , praeparet bellum.
