The war is out

The war is out
between those in greed
and those living in value.

The factions of the powerful are splitting.
Some have come to their senses
no more wanting to carry their spear
secretly refusing orders.

But its not power that brings their downfall,
its their lack of compassion,
that de-masks their ugly faces
for everyone bold enough to see.

—————

Deutsche Übersetzung:

Der Krieg ist los
zwischen denen in Gier
und denen die Wert leben.

Die Fraktionen der Mächtigen spalten sich.
Manche kommen zu Sinnen
unwillig den Speer weiter zu tragen
weigern sie sich heimlich Befehle auszuführen.

Aber es ist keine Macht, die deren Untergang bringt,
es ist ihr mangelndes Mitgefühl,
welches ihr hässliches Antlitz zeigt
für jeden der mutig genug ist, es anzuschauen.

    All war criminals should have to apologize daily for their sacrifices. That would be certainly not an excessive punishment.
