PRIDE?

Do you not use the deaths of courageous men,
To strike out against a different point of view,
To satisfy with your own virulent pen
The anger and the weakness that lives in you?
What glory do you seek from those who died,
As you speak here as the defender of their worth?
What makes you think it’s your role to decide,
Who’s right and wrong in this great universe?
You state quite clearly what your hatreds are,
But your anger makes it questionable at best,
The distance that you look is short of far,
Yours is a self-promotional sort of quest.
But that is not a sin for pain can be,
An influence in the things we choose to see.
