Peace Begins At Home

There is no art to war
no glory or valor
just the fallen dead
and those survivors
returned home
who’ve cheated death
and, in return, been
cheated of their innocence
heroes today are no more
the stuff of myth and legend
but mere Homeric shades of
past celebrated killers
hazardous duty pay
in their pockets, flung out
to far-flung desert oases
brimming with hellish clamor
this modern-day soldier
of misfortune is bankrolled
by bankrupt foreign policies
underwritten in blood
spilt solely in service of
rogue homeland insecurity.
