Prophets, a poem

Prophets

The Prophets of Profits have spoken —
war must surely come!
All wishes for peace were but token;
now we’re beating the drum.

The lives of a few (or of many)
do not count when we sum;
No, to us they’re not worth one penny
and soon we all will be numb.

The Prophets of Profits have spoken
(would that they were struck dumb) —
we must break what’s already broken;
war must surely come!
