Victim-perpetrator bond is an ugly game;
the anticipation and generation of blame.
An external saviour completes the trinity;
whether terrestrial, off-world or a divinity.
The roles can be reversed and recapped;
for added confusion they are overlapped.
A ceaseless assault on response-ability;
a degradation of self-worth and humility.
Men versus women? Prepared for battle!
Believers or heretics? Nothing but cattle!
Colour conflict? Whatever fits the frame,
so long as the outcome keeps the same.
If eye for an eye plays out at group scale,
is the unique individual not set up to fail?
Living under constant duress and stress;
a dream come true for control busi-ness.
It begs a question: why persist in playing,
when we are the ones losing and paying?
