War And You


You might have seen the gory war
in Iraq and Afghanistan
And you are too sorry
to see that man, woman
and children are slaughtered
you might have debated
how to ban how to prevent
this monster war, but to your
surprise to know that it will never
as long as the greed, as long as the desire
to be hegemonic, are there, to your wonder
to be aware that there is a war too in you
with all the ignominious qualities said above
and that war is between your mind and intellect
to surpass each other they engage in bitter conflict
in between these grand two, where are you?
though you are not the partner, not in the picture
yet you can not ban it, if you try to prevent them
to do a war they will vanish you, you ceased to exist
the same principle is working behind every war
you can not do anything just sit on your couch
and lick your finger

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
