Global Conflagration

Americans get closer to building weapon of the future

Who is left to reign in this ruthless Power
Whose ambitions unrelenting is to tower
Leaving peoples of other nations to cower
Their war-fed ambitions this Earth they’ll scour

A Super-Power that brandishes a mask of love and peace
Beneath which lies its true face of contemptuous deceit
While pledging a false-flagged allegiance to democracy
It raises the RED WHITE and BLUE to global hegemony

Unquestioned, eliciting the co-operation of equally devious allies
Their ambition fed by promise to a piece of the  ‘wealth’ pie
By Security Council manipulation to their charted course
Collectively sanctioned to take what they desire - be it by force

Who is left to reign in this ruthless Power
Lest we see the construct of yet another Babylon Tower
This land of Earth with faces and speech of many nations
Must be saved from their impending global conflagration

George Krokos,  

If the Americans don't do it first, ask yourself - who else could and to or for what purpose? - but to out do the Americans.
