world is broken in so many ways
though weapons are working
ordinary targets deemed
to be harboring
neither aspiration nor dream
we’ve heard this story retold
seen it played out in theater
(time and again)
two-bit actors slaughtering
their lines as directed by
feeding on senselessness
july two thousand fourteen

Fantastic imagery, J! The world is an incomplete jigsaw puzzle.
A puzzle indeed, Millie – thank you
It’s hard to mend what’s broken with precision blasts that break apart—
The only thing that has changed is that the technology has become more efficient at slaughter. Well writ.
yes, we’ve been quite efficient for a very long time – thanks for visiting here again
Yes, at destruction we are working fine.
This would be a welcome submission to A4P…I know…just nudging 🙂
