WHERE?

Is peace really won through war
Is freedom what we are fighting for
Who is it that dictates
and who is it that declares
… surely not the God
who has numbered our hairs.
It’s politicians here
and politicians there
except on the battlefield
and they are where…?
not here… not trudging
and dying as soldiers go
… perhaps overhead circling
with the carrion crow…
