Momentous Occasions

Stones beneath feet
Pebbles between toes
Be therefore lights
Unto yourselves

The whirlwind within
Us long prior to
2016 buried deep
Inside manifest destiny

Petty indulgences
National pastimes
Soaked in blood of
Other nations, races

Gathered at numerous
Momentous occasions
Waving off peace pipes
Choosing gods of wars

Smelling victories and
Backyard barbeques
Overseas sacrifices
Who are the cannibals

We’re an empire now
And when we act
We create our own reality
Reductio ad absurdum
