When the Soviet Union was fighting Muslims,
in a long terrible war in Afghanistan,
the USA was backing the Muslims.
So, I was told to hate the Soviet Communists
and support the Afghanistan Muslims.
Then it sucked when the Soviet Union
went and broke up into separate countries.
Because then I was expected to quit hating communists
and switch my hate over to hating Muslims.
Should I be against peace in the Middle East?
If peace breaks out, it will exhausting
to start from scratch hating
some other nation’s people.
This tennis match of back and forth
hatred for other inhabitants of Earth,
wouldn’t go on as much if peace paid
as well as hatred and war.
With nations leaders lacking self-esteem,
their bully boy tactics aren’t going to change.
As I approach retirement I know I’ll be set,
if I find a 401K plan invested in flags and drones.
