Nuclear Impunity

How long do we have left?
Before science and demonic expression,
falls upon our eyes, unfolding the dense, compressed universal matter.
Drenching our son's and daughters, in a blanket of screaming lucid poison,
the children of understanding, unleashing the lion,the apex of destruction.
Those poor innocent slaves of war, Human novelty stacked and stored
to what resolution, mother stroking her baby's hair, her 
Little fingers grasping finger.
Old man pushing a cart just given all he had, too sacrifice and starve,
the flash of heat, come fulfil the street 
Then back home burgers, medals and beers!
we appreciate our survival, fuck the rest, in-denial,
Funny eyes and no American football!
would never believe the devil fooled you,
Would you?
It doesn't matter now,  the cotton flag remains untarnished, 
glossed up smothered in varnish, we the heroes of this tragedy
Dull-grey sky, sombre and clammy.
Chivalry died a long time ago, and honour is ours to make believe,

Living a lie but living free!
