Enemy Within

We spend more time and effort to destroy
Than we exert upon justice and peace
Lie in wait for advantage, with troops to deploy
Yet ineffective in aid, should bullets cease
We can't defend lies and thieves with force
Any more than men win upon smashing a mirror
We look at a reflection, stoic, claiming we are boss
As our plans over ourselves are made clearer
Philanthropic we are, when we horde far too much gold
Yet see dregs and rebels, when poor stand upon only principle
We connive to protect the assets we stole
