War, Washes Out Good Common Sense

war, the bastard cousin of hate
on winged, angry cherubs
clutching immense patience
out-waits peace
for opportunities frequent
their crooked tooth smile
knowing our weakness
our violent propensities
brim his fiery chasm
unleashing untold griefs
upon a scarred landscape
