Sabres rattle

Can we ever be sure that the intention was pure
or are we the poorer for doubting?
I see a
North Korea
everywhere I look,
a different name,
but it’s the same
old game they play.
There’s not a table big enough
to sit around and talk over stuff,
such nonsense as there be
such nonsense that we see.
Blame it on the media
or Wikipedia,
both are social
and I’m just talking to the voices
in my head.
