POETRY FORMAT, 13 May 2013
When we go marching off to war
our need for drugs begins to soar.
Let’s gulp them down, anesthetize
our brains so we won’t realize
our convoluted policies
are riddled with inanities.
Let’s kill for peace—don’t question how—
just make us more ferocious now.
I love my drugs, and they love me,
and they’ll insure our victory.
