WAR

If war is evil,
Why did God invent it?
War is a process,
A culling,
For we are not exempt,
From nature,
From reality,
No matter where,
We seek to hide.

War is about death,
And so is life.
Evil? What is evil:
The killing of cattle,
The feasting on flesh?
Killing is natural,
As natural as death.
Justified by its existence,
War is an ant,
A blossom, a bee!
It determines the strong,
The survivor,
The future,
And preserves humanity.
