Gary Beck

Conflicts

Armies march across the globe
subduing peoples.
Rebel groups loot and burn
destroying villages.
Religious movements clash
proclaiming the will of god.
Western democracies
consider themselves
better than others,
yet they all have
poverty populations,
criminal elements,
and abusers of the law,
while only the wealthy
have recourse
to favorable outcomes.
