Games turn into
battles
evils we mean to end
wars
Shell shocked children
wonder what all
the fighting’s for

Stressed out combatants
suffering from PTSD
can’t stop being
afraid of every
bend in the road
potentially paved with
IEDs.

Our tongue thick with
violence
subliminal conquest
Imperialism
far less vestigial
than we care to admit
Video games groom
young minds with
decimation
just for
the fun of it

Subjugation
the flip side
of liberation’s
coin
obliterated histories
assimilated refugees
cultures
natural resources
purloined

Change
we manage to
take to the
World Bank
bargain basement
Real Estate
at favorable
interest rates
Denial
Willful Amnesia
when propaganda
and national interests
conflate

Developing markets
courtesy of munitions
spent
at the cost of
lives
populations displaced
a global economy
A worldwide
disgrace.
