Ruthless Military Invasions In An Age Of Empires

one particularly sad aspect
of ruthless military invasions
in an age of expansion empires

is the concept of race superiority
recurring arrogant master race theory
repeating since ancient civilizations

the nationalism of race superiority
blind allegiance to dictator leaders
moron clone mind syndrome soldiers

justifies invasion exploitations
of innocent civilian populations
first sell hoax invasion pretexts

moron clone mind syndrome ensures
citizens ranting support our brave soldiers
their bombing killing tortures rapes?

you have not heard of soils of wars?
sad necessity of collateral damages?
prime objective control resources?

do not be calling evil good
return evil not in political causes
let the meek share the earth

'my brother hurts
I share his pain
I meet God in him'

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
