These days we
collectively mourn
those we have sacrificed
on the holy altar
of our ignorance.
There was a time
when we limited war
to one per generation,
but we now wage them
in clusters, it being easier
to deal with the interminable
periods of boredom
where we have nothing to do
but imagine peace.
