god and country and a woman

god and country and a woman              September 28, 2016
you keep fighting for your nation of men
at the expense of the soul of woman
for you wish to occupy me
with the army of your egoism and vanity
what could a man ever know
of birthing sons and countries?

your nationalism, your religionism
they will strangle you
silently with the wire of the assassin
who crawls in your own skin

for you did swear
by your god
to love only me

this is a most dangerous prayer
for a god who is any god
will give you the freedom
to prove your words
and the price of false oaths
is whole nations of slaves.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
