ix: to need self-destruction is human

you can read the paper
when the war is over
when the industrial smog completely
blocks out the sun
when we will all be corralled in tall buildings
built of steel and concrete
and taller than the clouds
buildings built with barred windows
so no one can fall out and break a neck

everyone knows that the war is for
the public good
its purpose to erase racial cultural religious
differences gender discrimination and intolerance
to create world peace and a world only john lennon
could have imagined

the enemy is on the other face of the mirror
on the dark side of the moon
He has infiltrated the populace through the backdoors
of the mind, creeped and crawled, spread like ink
into our brains, so much that we do not know
our own thoughts from His

and we shall win out against Him
because we are brave and strong enough
with centuries of war in our books of history
that show how well we have fought against ourselves

and when we have won
we will build a new world
full of Beauty and Truth
devoid of all racial cultural religious
differences gender discrimination and intolerance
we will build a new world where the shrapnel of battle
will be buried deep under the brittle fragile earth
we will forget the horrors of the last war we fought
the war to end all wars

but just in case He comes back
we must protect ourselves from His might
we must build tall buildings, taller than the clouds
so He will be unable to climb up them
we must build tall buildings, built of steel and concrete
so He will be unable to drill through them
we must build tall buildings, with barred windows
so He will be unable to get through them

and we shall read the paper so it can tell us
just how well we won the war
