Endless War (Single)

by The Autumn Stones



Inspired by Christopher Hitchens's essay
"In Defense of Endless War"; Slate, 2011.09.19


In your little ease
Frozen vision

Cuckolds crack
Come back as
Tasteless, racist rapists

In a spin
Lost for all words
And burned

What you claim
Pleased to remain
In chains

We’ve got an endless war
On our hands

In the streets
Complete invasive, safe

Inclined to mindless
Trite contrivance

In a bind
Won’t wonder why
You whine

What you say
Pleased to deny
And lie

We’ve got an endless war
On our hands

Incomplete, entreating
Thieves to fleece

Dreams of life or death
Bereft of zest
A pest

In a jam
About all that I
Can stand

What you want
Pleased to belong
And wrong

We’ve got an endless war
On our hands
