The revelations of the past week are a abysmal affirmation of why "War is not the Answer"

War and oil are the instruments of a dehumanizing spiral that are too powerful for individuals to resist. I composed and read this poem for the first time about a month ago:

US Declaration of Delusion

We are the barbarians

We thought it was something

indigenous to our new land

but it was merely

in the eyes of we

the beholders

then as now

we make big boom

the world falls at our feet

our delusions restored

forever amen

O - U - I ?

We are the barbarians

and after all those generation, our delusions haunt us, and we stand naked with a fool to defend our honor.
