Art of War

Why do we war?
We want us and ours.
What are we?
The difference between us and the enemy.
Their unwillingness to accept the freedom of plurality.
What is freedom?
Me being me, you being you, embracing each other spiritually.
How can I embrace you with my dagger drawn?
Let me drop my weapon for ever and fire the first round.
You may kill me but I will succeed in sounding your spirits horn.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
