The Enemy



The enemy must be pacified.
The enemy must be identified.

The enemy is everyone and everywhere.
Can we choose not to care?

To let them do their worst?
To lower our defenses first?

That's crazy—crazy!—mad—
when most of the world is bad.

The enemy without and within
destroys the empire again.
