A Vox Rendition: More Than They Are


The first foreign fight, years in the making
a policy to end than win

a current and former, positioning a extrication,
ending the forever to then move forward

“I’m bringing them back here, I’m bringing them back there”
“I would oppose this, and I would do that”

ahh, there it is, that is why
because of the polls
the political leaders are taking notice, after all the death, the blood, the cost
to end it now is in their favor; at least to say so
but decades of pain, decades of harm, are decades of neglect to oppose till now
deeply flawed

100 more.
lies were told the same day
pandemic or not, blame it all away
voted for
refuses to make a stand
can’t break a promise never made

a forever debate on forever wars,
empty rhetoric.
