Language of conflict

Standard

Recently I’ve heard our leader

Talk about surrender and capitulation

I’ve heard him talk about enduring shot and shell

I wonder why he uses the language of war

After all we are at war with no one

We are not enemies with any one at all

It seems like he’s trying to appeal with the ignorant

And those lacking intellect

It appears they’re being primed by those who rule

Like Hitler did in pre-war Germany

Use negative and hateful words to stir

Up all those who seek to blame others

For them not achieving what they want from life

These people say they live a life of strife

Caused by immigration which is a total lie

But this kind of narrative decides the divides and sides

This is what the leaders of our country has inspired

Toxicity that makes our society run wild.
