If ends could only be justfied,
By the manner of the means,
Which lead to thier existence,
Then the future would begin to gleam,
But as it is,
Its sad to say,
Thats not the world we're living in,
Here the outcome validates,
Monumental sin,

If people could only be mortified,
By damage to thier honour,
Rather than threat to thier lives,
Then there would be an end to horror,
But as it is,
Right here and now,
Our priotrities are wrong,
We'd rather live a little longer,
At the price of freedoms song.

Liberty has died a painful death,
And we only have ourselves to blame,
We fear the fire's unholy breath,
And with fear we fan the flames,
And so we play,
A game with entropy,
A game we will surely lose,
Guiding ourselves onto the blade,
In trying to avoid a bruise.

Glad to raise the first flag and star here, Tru ....

I intended to put the "thumbs up" icon here, but it's gone... Instead, there are some blue faces... and some icon involving a gun? I'm lost. This new layout is a headache. I hope they put the old one back.

That aside, this was beautiful.

Makes me want to draw a post-WW3 war scenario, very inspiring. I love it.

Excellent job!

Thanks for that comment

I wrote this in reaction to some of the things that are happening with the way western interests are being protected at this point in time. It made me think of all the times that things have gone down this way before throughout the history of mankind, and I was trying to write something that reflects the here and now, while paying respect to the past at the same time.
