Buffy's Song

I just heard Buffy's song
for the first time in many years.
It brought me to tears,
because it reminded me of 
how much I have changed,
how far I have gone and
what I have become.
I once stood
shoulder to shoulder
with other of the same mind,
sure to the bone,
that no killing 
could ever be justified.
The universal soldier
could never claimed
to be sent by me.

Now I sit,
a dirty old poet,
analyzing angst, 
grieving over grief,
rationalizing apathy,
watching a hard rain fall,
and universal soldiers
kill women, children
and each other,
do genocide in the name
of the corporate order
and myself.
