We stand with 🇺🇦 STOP WAR

Dan Savery Raz | The Leaders

Ah, these are the leaders
These are the leaders –

Madmen in suits.

Believing in numbers, percentages and sanity
Drawing bar-charts to rationalize tanks and air strikes.
Using ‘intelligence’ to fool themselves
with White Papers and dossiers
In dimly lit corridors they meet in murder;
It is not just us and them. I want

An end to war
another world was possible

It has been said, once it was true –
Violence breeds violence.

The lunatics with their economies
Protecting. The lunatics with their rocket launchers
Projecting. Leaders are leading us down
the road
to ruin

we are going   going…
