Val enjoys writing rhymed poetry with a valuable message in it.
Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.
-- Isaac Asimov
They shrug over it as a normal way of life
not seeing how it shames our human race
admiring every idiot with a big gun or a knife
religious, but even cheering at wars in space.
For, we haven't got enough violence on earth
so we need to spread "word of love" beyond
dignifying destruction for all of its crazy worth
advertising violence of which we are so fond.
From toys to movies to each video game
we are coming creative about destruction
after a too long history loaded with shame
as if calling violence our healthy interaction.
How many more world war movies to see
and their reruns, in a lack of new slaughter
is that really what humans are craving to be
"bad asses" or rapists of someone's daughter.
With amygdala, that lower portion of brain
being stimulated instead of the frontal lobe
we promote the subculture that's so insane
compromising the future of the entire globe.
Are people so poorly educated
not to know it's animalistic and crude
degrading our values so readily celebrated
while presenting a culture primitive and screwed.
An ex-soldier, drill sergeant to better understand
I hated that charade of de-personalizing obligation
now looking around, and observing this unholy trend
one thing's for sure -- it's one massive crazy fascination.
