I had to write this down to clear my head,
to try to understand the reason why
politicians talk about talks.
Politicians talk about talks and cheer
their progress while we witness people dying,
for all the while the demon stalks.
All the while the demon stalks
opening cracks, stirring conflicts,
causes driven by bombs and guns,
piling corpses, so where's the sense in it,
pointless as the dryness of dry spit.
Politicians talk about talks
and all the while the demon stalks.
The demon stalks.
