NEW WAR

We have entered a new era
Of warfare and conflict.
No longer does nation fight nation
Rather international organizations
Against the established order;
A war to be fought
In our homes and streets.
In our schools and offices;
It is a war against
The disenfranchised;
A war in which
Victory produces new adversaries.

The war can only be won
when we embrace our humanity
Rather than our differences
But what governing system
Has not created its own
Disenfranchised?
