Unnecessary Evil

The emperor may have no clothes

but has a lot of guns.  He sells them

to his enemies; sit back–enjoy the fun.

The news is full of tragedies–

a magical disaster–and economic

strategies, while unemployment festers.

Money sticks to criminals

and flies away from fools.

Unnecessary animals

make new and ruthless rules.

The world rewards the reptile

who conquers his own conscience

with punishing projectiles

for those across the ocean.

The jig is almost up

in this rigged game

of itchy trigger fingers

and helpless targets.

Fish swim in an ocean

of their own tears.

The human race is losing

the war against itself.

Chalk one up for nature

while she repairs her flesh.
