5 not-so-greats (of human fate)

Misplaced dreams
Invented nightmares
Daylight terrors
Lifetime errors

Good people suffer,
The wicked laugh
A happy hungry man
gives a sad hungry laugh

Halted destinies
Half-baked proclamations
World peace is a myth
War is human-borne

The pestilence of conflict
The irony of fighting wars
to attain peace,
Are there any evil soldiers?

Or are the real killers behind
the desks, sipping fresh
coffee and giving orders?
Who is responsible?
