W A R (poem)

By Mike Hastie


The banality of evil keeps dribbling
the ball down court.
The Dow Jones keeps scoring.
The black limousine pulls up
to the funeral home.
The body is transported to the
church on time.
Everything has to do with timing.
The Brink's Armored truck pulls
up to the White House for its
portion of the profit.
Synchronicity to perfection.
The flags are at half mast.
Taps... always Taps.
In God We Trust.

Jesus Christ !!
The death of a belief system.
The sleeping are buried alive in
cemeteries all across the nation.
Make America Great Again...
