for war is not
no war
but conscription
coerce the misery
a whole generation adrift
they say
waits to be steeled
they say

(bull...inequality has/will always be a prerequisite)

those who speak for a draft
lack the conscience
to resist one

tanks will starve
hollowing out an ancient legion
of empty uniforms
empire hucksters
conformity
vengeance idolatry
just war flimflam
death tricksters
