The tools of power

The tools of power

Throwing bodies into battle

 it’s the barbaric way.

Forget civilisation.

That only gets in the way.

Forget the literature,

the plays and the ballet.

Reality is nasty death

in every dark valley.

The paranoid megalomaniacs

are the ones that rule.

Forget lessons of peace

you may have learnt in schools.

People are deployed

as their disposable tools.

It’s not hard to see

that the world is run by fools.

So, throw your body into war,

your blood into the ground.

And know that they are using you

as you breathe your very last sound.
