adding up Afghanistan and Iraq US troop deaths
in retribution of 9/11 just under 3,000
leaving 74 to add up to a match
not yet adding up to the millions killed in WW II
let’s remember Hiroshima the world, like Poe’s raven,
“NEVER MORE, NEVER MORE” declared
the Burning Bush is rattling again
can’t you hear him saying
“It depends on what never is.”
God will not bless America
until it learns peaceful conflict resolution.
Sixty years and counting
with no evidence of a learning curve.
