Prompt ~ CASUAL INJUSTICE 

CASUAL INJUSTICE 

by John Yeo

They knew It was wrong from the moment it happened 

The enemy were slaughtered it was kill or be killed

At the end of the battle they were deeply saddened.

~

When the artillery blasted the village was flattened

The survivors were helpless captured and grilled

They knew It was wrong from the moment it happened.

~

With the madness of war their minds were maddened 

Showing icy indifference the orders were filled

At the end of the battle they were deeply saddened.

~

Their inhuman actions were never examined 

Their alien beliefs were ingrained, hate instilled 

They knew It was wrong from the moment it happened.

~

The ultimate outcome had been planned and patterned 

Collateral damage would be impossible to rebuild

At the end of the battle they were deeply saddened.

~

Their robotic minds may one day be challenged

Their casual injustice and cruelty that chilled

At the end of the battle they were deeply saddened 

They knew It was wrong from the moment it happened.
