Or is it just an artifact
Of culture with its nomenclature
Of what it means to be attacked?
And how apply our cogitation
In thinking through civilization,
That is if you’re alive to think,
And not forever on the blink?
Does war emerge from human culture
When modern man decides to go
To war, while singing heidi-ho?
Did it derive from agriculture?
Before then what we had to eat
Was gathered fast and swallowed neat.
