Salute

The texture of darkness heightens the pain
Jet spears of agony as brilliant as flame
There is no reprieve, no escape from the game
Twisted and tormented they all march the same

Thinking they are unique in human centuries of war
Fighting for what they don’t even understand any more
Violence for violence has made them death’s whore
Writhing in the blood and dirt at the enemy’s door

Alas history repeats like bullets vomiting spew
Humanity’s self-deception in protracted review
Declaring and chanting and proclaiming nothing new
This cause, like all others, fades in time’s endless brew

Salute
And it continues on and on forevermore

As someone who has been death's whore forever, I taste the bitter truth in this.
