Who the Enemy Is

The war is not between

One country and another

One group of countries

And other groups of countries.

The war is not about

Saving any culture

Or preserving any way of life.

It’s not about religion, either.

The war is not against

Them, or that, or those

Enemies, or monsters in the dark

Wars are against you and me

My brother and sister, both.

  1. Your poem tells a terrible truth.... that is that all war is personal. There is another truth: all war is personal to every human.
