We Are The Ones - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Kent State.
We shoot students don't we?

We do divide and conquer, don't we?

God sent Americans, asked them to kill.

We nurtured him and did he ever grow!
Then came the time to act.
We toppled what had fast become a plague.
We launched a purge,
and, later on, a surge.

The World.

We are the new gendarmes.
Soldiers of righteousness.
We carry bibles and big guns
to make the world a better place.

We are the chosen ones.
Please show your proof
of membership,
a good portfolio will do.
But nothing less.

Dedicated to the thousands of American lives sacrificed for nothing.
