MAN

Man is a predator; he was born to kill.
His own ambition he seeks to fulfil,
It is only by law by an enforced rule,
That he rides a horse and not a mule.
Some will die for God; if they believe,
For state or country if they perceive,
What governments order is the truth,
Regardless of the lack of proof.
Mostly soldiers do as they are told,
When youth makes them less wise but bold,
And when its over; the great sacrifice!!,
When they are just remnants of the political device,
They cling to what they never had,
In a culture of anger that leaves them sad.
