a poem about war and the everyday 

War/life balance—
How does one achieve
the optimum?

Cold War, Gulf War, War on Terror,
War on Drugs, Race War, Sex wars,
Culture wars, Tweet wars—

War in Ukraine, war in Somalia…
All our lives: war movies, alien invasions
At war with ourselves

And every day, we go back to work
Back to our arts & sciences
Return to our measured critique

While the War Machine rumbles
And the Beast feeds…
And our childrens' futures bleed.
