Nicholas Nikolov (April.6,1988 / Toronto)
Disturbing the Peace
Executives of multi-billion dollar oil
and/or wall street organizations, send a multitude to boil,
in the hopes to defeat a propaganda-driven foe to foil;
they have plenty more possible antagonists to tame,
but those overseas enemies have become to blame,
yet simultaneously, they are friends of the very same
elite. Viral spreading terrorist threats and chaos, coil
in daunting fear via telecommunications in hopes to toil
the populations national security and safety buried under soil.
Ultimately, the governing superpowers - spearheading
global empires - heads of state are warmongering
greedily collecting money ignoring their people dying
on the home front and globally.
Sitting on-top-of-the-world all high and mighty
Upon their golden thrones, while grandly
well-concealing plentiful of incriminating
closet-kept bones; playing games, risk-taking
choices turn for the worst due to poor decision-making
all this torment for the always precious Black Gold.
