Calling All Fanatics

Poem By Wayne Guy Butterfield

It's not difficult to live with
deceit and delusion
Want to believe and you will

It's not difficult to tolerate
killing civilians
Greater cause dictates they die

It's not difficult to recognize
those who are evil
Only the other side qualifies

So join a crusade
Enjoy the charade
It's not really difficult at all

Good work Wayne, It's obvious what you mean by fanatics, unfortunately, those who go against the neo liberalism of today are classed as fanatics. Still a good work and well structured. Denis Joe
Very thoughtful poem Wayne. Your sarcasm is not missed. Great job. Sincerely, Mary
Great piece of work, Wayne. Nicely highlights the hypocracy so prevalent in both modern politics and perceived 'history'. Loved it! Jon.
