This Morning’s Terror Deed In Brussels

 

Folk will always find excuses

To make war.

Always reasons:

Territory, politics, religion –

Anything that they can all a something.

Principle, you see.

Anything to act out evil instincts;

Greed and greediness,

Anger, fear,

Exclusion, exclusivity –

Consequence: explosion, death,

Revenge.

Endless. Yet,

War’s always followed by a peaceful phase.

Builds again from evolution pushing up again and out:

Typhoon→calm,

Volcano→calm,

Earthquake→calm,

Terror’s error→shock→calm;

A halt, a standstill, then, a cautious movement

Back to normal;

What is normal?

Customs, ritual, tradition.

Temporary all – form, reform,

The whole thing starting over.

Maybe

Even death.
