WAR

Posted by Ian McAdam on February 7, 2013

GREEN ZOOM_1

Scrap of paper theology,

religion of an army saint,

a martyr,

the kind of man’s man

fit and fast,

frustrated by

 politic lethargy,

knots of democracy,

merits of theocracy,

pace of meritocracy

two faces profile

urgency of life,

lust

lust for satisfaction

victory

hero worship

medals

dust that parches the back of the throat

codes and coda

and secrets entrusted under pain of

humiliation in incarceration

derision

war

with demon urgency

escalates

no god would want

this,

poppies are ironic

oh, no.

the bread

and butter

demands it.

Cigarettes are dead giveaways.

But nicotine is a distraction.
