Peace is Impossible

The leader sees people
but not individuals.
The lesser of evils
becomes ancient ritual.

The captain leads soldiers
with army field manuals.
His missions from folders,
the violence is mutual.

The person sees mirrors
and fails to be clinical.
There’s losers and winners,
both always criminal.

If the greed inside man
is always unstoppable,
there’s no Utopian land
and peace is impossible.
