Imperium?

POETRY FORMAT, 4 Mar 2013

Tom Greening – TRANSCEND Media Service

Our nation’s efforts, cruel and chronic,
to reign supreme and hegemonic
impress our allies as moronic,
imperialist and quite demonic.
We think that we should rule the earth
because worldwide there’s such a dearth
of beings with our noble traits,
thus we should dominate their fates.
The world as our imperium?
This is a daft delirium.
