The next slam already happened, Kevin... in fact, plenty of slams have come... the only problem was, nobody on our half of the globe really cared. That's war for you - if they're not our innocents, they're not innocent at all.
Great poem though... like how you made it cyclic. That's just how war is... slam leads to slam leads to slam. When will it end?
"Faith" means the will to avoid knowing what is true.
~ Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
