The art of destroying people

Is an intricate and delicate art

Masked by patriotism and power

Hidden behind layers of fear

And the insatiable desire of freedom

It is an unscrupulous game

Employed by governing bodies

To make mice of men and women

To create tombs of the living

And rob the souls of children

Dangerous words to speak of when

The unspoken threat of revolt is upon us

The world has made a fortune 

Off of killing the weak

Raping the innocent and

Plundering the land until

Nothing is left but

Scattered shards of a ruined existence
