The Ape with Clothes On

02 Mar
you would think we'd learn
the twentieth century was a game of thrones
with oceans of blood

all in the name of political philosophy
combined with hunger for power

five tyrants alone (and there were more)
account for over 100 million murderous deaths
in less than a hundred year span

what have we learned? Not much apparently
with another cruel devil

rising up to swallow
a whole country, 

a spectacle for all to see
