Civilization

Folder: 
A New View

.

Purchased with blood

and mounds of dead boys,

civilization congeals

around peace where building

begins and death ends.

.

Secure, no longer apprehensive,

no need for hard hearts and quick

minds. Civilization is slow. Take

a walk up the street to the park

slow.

.

Born of violent intent, blessed

with a finite number of graves,

in spite of dispute as a lifestyle,

civilization clings to the memory

and shows up after all the purging.
