Dichotomy~by Paul Lenzi


 

 

Dichotomy

war_or_peace__by_indicolor-d926ye4

“War or Peace?” by Pearl Philip

human nature

craves peace

so much so that

we fight for it

constantly

peace is the

nobly sought

purpose of politics

war is alas its

unfortunate

ultimate

implement

conflict at once

both repugnant

and compelling

intractable

moral bête noire

of our imperfect

matrix of mind

heart and soul

***************

 

“We make war that we may live in peace.” – Aristotle

 

 

From my book Onionskin
