A Warmonger’s Face

There is this theory or idea,
however pervase,
that the warmonger’s face,
with downturned mouth
and beady eyes will plunge
us all into chaos
by his thoughts alone,
unleashed and uncontrolled
upon this; our peaceful planet.

At least peaceful for those
of us so far, so fortunate,
to have known nothing different.

And so the planet holds its breath,
as if it could close its very eyes
in an anticipation of that first
punch and wield of power,
throws the undercut!
Though all our hopes be –
it never happens.
