A Hateful Ode

 

You are a magnificent beast-
A true terror-
A commanding, demanding force

You are a natural tendency-
A destructive instinct-
A permeating, disintegrating feeling

You cross boundaries-
Culture-nation-race-income
They have no effect on you
You do not stop at these-
You infest them

You are a disease-
Our undying love is taken-
A monster formed
Some power respected yet rejected

Why do we honor you?
Immortalizing you with
Rape-Bombs-Swords-Planes-Armies-Words-
We construct monuments of bones

Rape, where do you stop?
Bombs, where do you drop?
Swords, where do you slice?
Planes, where do you fly?
Armies, where do you march?
Words, where do you lie?

Hate, Hate-
How much love will it take?
