Unobtainable Peace

Whilst landward We strive for the unobtainable peace

 On the oceans reigns the universal cannibalism of the sea 

Quite like the quest by Captain Ahab for Moby Dick seemed fancifully lofty

 so are the images of the killing of Libya,s Colonel Khadafy 

be wary of overzealous military in pursuit of hegemony 

"I,d strike the sun if it insulted me" is not a coherent Foreign Policy

 We have survived fascism, the Holocaust, the threat of nuclear annihilation and terrorism with moral distinction 

The more we foster hate

 traipse foreign plains with a cowboys gait

 the faster it will lead to our extinction
