Below are the white crosses sown in the fields
of Passiondale and Normandy

Those soldiers of two terrible wars
might spin in their claustrophobic Hades

Open skull mouth anguish
all that blood and pain was for nought

The flags of Nations are lowered
cowed down … unsung songs … unheard voices

A Leviathan has risen unchecked
a Monster not of weak flesh like Hitler

This creature is made of ideas and ideals
unobtainable but for numbers on a page

Those numbers were once people
now to be altered … deleted … moved on

No army can be sent to defeat this Thing
we have created from bureaucracy and corruption

Where every dictator has failed
It brings unanimity and slavery to the free
