Don’t you know me?
For eons you have glorified me.
Thrust you sons and daughters at my feet.
are overflowing with what I send back.
I am a vile, putrid, stinking god,
who feasts on your fears. I give victory to the merciless, craven and greedy,
not the wise, gifted or righteous.
I shatter your families,
widow your lovers,
orphan your babies.
I neither build nor create.
I demolish your cities.
And all that is beautiful
disappears in my wake.
You continue to worship me,
Gaily throwing all of your wealth
into my all-consuming pyre.
I am WAR!
Damn you. Look at me!!
