“Imminent” - 1/7/20

The threat of war is always there
The thread of disease constant
The threatening looks of angry parents
Eyes every child fears

The threat of failure in all realms
Cripples the most insightful
Temporal and inconstant woes
Wield might of crushing armies

The threat of violence soul-obscures
The thread of peace falls dormant
Its frozen cobweb consciousness
Fascistically abandoned

The threat of cynicism’s clutch
A hawkish machination
Separation replaces touch
Distance gives cruelty carte blanche

The rules of war are mystifying
The tools of war are petrifying
The ruling books of angry leaders
Penned in borrowed tears

The threat of insurrection flares
Landmines of insecurity
Suppression is the saddest blow
Every sentient endures
