Empty Civilization - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Our modern civilization is empty-
Emptied of insight and wisdom
On face of wars and conflicts.
So emptied of insight and wisdom
So empty and rotten it is
when its only solution is
power behind weapons.


__________









____
On the long Syrian war




Power behind weapons.
______________________
On the 6th year of the Syrian war.
