DESTRUCTION’S EVE

Come destruction’s Eve
Hard on the heels of fomented war, I believe
As again we jump into the maw pell-mell
Our birthright to the highest bidder sell
A pre-emptive strike
Justice lost un-Christ-like
In promoted enmity
Can’t you see…

World opinion’s ranked against us
Most of our allies speak out against us
All Arabia’s arrayed against us
What a disjointed weave we knot
When Christian, Infidel, Zealot
All Moslems for Allah’s existence fight
Yet do we go foolishly to strike them all
Send them all peremptorily to hell?
