He gazes absently at his red-stained hands,
Apparently unaware of the writhing bodies around him.
He is numbed, and feels no remorse -- no pain.
The fallen are numbers --
Simply unavoidable "collateral damage."
And he is blinded -- not by the will to survive -
For it is a one-sided war;
But by the attempt to strengthen an id,
The attempt to gain and exert supreme power,
And for the sake of selfish material obsessions.
The world catches no glimpse of the continuous
Pain and suffering of those caught in the middle.
All we see is a man named "hero,"
Cheered by people who are ignorant of the truth.
