Winding Up War


The U.S. in reality
Is not exceptional for good,
And is just one among many,
Wreaking havoc as warring would.
The corrupt combine war machine
Of military and big biz
Seeks power and money obscene.
A worldwide bully - U.S. is.
The war hawks screech, 'Spend more. Spend more.'
Offense called defense is the game.
There will be peace only by war -
Humans do buy that - what a shame!

We the People should not forget
Bad war never made good peace yet.
