Why War?


I wish it was a simple thing
To explain why people go to war.
But anything that can reduce
Society and lives to rubble

Is from an unbridled darkness
Of our prehistoric DNA.
Like the wolf in domestic dogs,
We too have the capability

To turn and bite the hand that feeds.
Beginning from the first smell of blood,
Marking territory with scent,
Before a God existed, my child.
