Poem: Delusion

Between what we do
And what we'd like to think we do
Lies a vast bay of denial and delusion

We make believe
There is war in our bones
That growth is the child of destruction

That we are the chosen ones
God's boys and girls given carte blanche
To make war

We make believe
We are right or wrong
That it doesn't matter

In this world
And we'll take a flier
It doesn't matter in the next.
