Depraved

 

 

War machinery is a depraved trade

Camouflaged with a sauce of

peacemaking and humanitarian aid

doesn’t make it less vicious

Humanity’s decay

After all,

A moldy bread

adorned with marmalade

still remains a moldy bread

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Torn

 

 

Broken, being no longer

in one piece

Torn, pulled or ripped apart

in pieces with force

The dictionary explains what

my body and spirit already knew

 

Culpable

 

For being true

to myself

as I destroy you
