Sacrifice - an art work by T Newfields


By their noble sacrifice
it becomes easier for us to lie

By the valiant blood they shed
our corporate bodies stay ahead

By their brave deeds in hostile lands
our industrial profits expand

Thanks to new technology
which is a source of pride
our hegemony extends
& economy thrives

God Bless
our war machine
which turns simple wimps
with soggy convictions
'n limited information
into zealous, God-fearing patriots
ready ta kill
für any ideology

Frida: This poem is merely a political tirade.
Satoru: Well, it succeeds in one thing: communicating anger.
Dmiritri: Yeah, the way that some nations have become war machines should outrage anyone.
