All Over...

On the precipice of fortune's misfortune,
The powerful sit powerless
Individual islands with conflicting flags,
Battlements fortified against allies

The 'face of evil' is but a babe
The body, vestments of our discord,
An unclear enemy with unclear goals
Targeting our hearts and souls

Lessons learned, but forgotten
Unity pays, division costs
Lessons missed, no second chances
Collaboration, not compromise

The blame is ours to share
So, too, is the solution
Differences need not divide
Our mutual destruction is not a given.
