Stripes But No Stars

They converted factories full of metal

Into death

for power, for money, for glory.

For what?

To be the best? To be #1?

To prove a point about what?

An economic system?  A form of government?

Did they protect us? From what?

Ourselves?

That was somebody’s son, daughter, mother, father,uncle, aunt, cousin, friend…who died for what?

But unbelievers never count

If you’re not going to heaven

What’s the difference

If your hell is here on Earth?
