Divided

How lovely it is to live in a divided world.

Such joy to feel the enmity!

Such pleasure in the rage!

We don’t have to get on with everyone.

No, sir!

Piss off, I say!

We can stick our fingers up at those we

don’t like and feel good about it.

Cooperation is overrated—I like the

way of the fist instead.

Is that a dagger I see before me—damn right it is!

We are beasts after all—

wolves in a pack, and it such great fun

to tear the enemy apart.

All this soft and cuddly nonsense is

not the natural way—which is dog eat dog,

survival of the fittest, look after your tribe first.

And the lamb shalt lie down with the lion—bloody hell!

I know who’s gonna get up. 

 

And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; 

and he had two horns like a lamb, 

and he spake as a dragon (Revelation, KJV).
