The vicious and War

War attracts the virtuous.
it also attacks the vicious.
Eagles and Vultures fighting over carrion,
and gnawing the bones of fallen heros.
Indeed the corrupt are jealous of the virtuous.
The vicious find a way to fell them,
and tie them to a tree,
to eat their livers and laugh at their plight.
 
But which would you rather be?
virtuous or vicious?
Is it really worth it to be mean?
How is it noble to be so classless?
Is the brief joy of strutting on top of a pyramid
worth being sacrificed at the end of the season?
 
Our best warriors know how to wage peace.
They prefer keeping the killing to the minimum,
and avoid corrupt grease.
