Red Calf

As I have now joined a war generation, something I never, ever wanted to have happen, I 've noticed something. Maybe you have too. Most of those who call for wars, who direct it's policies, are old men. Why do old men craft situations that get young men killed? What's the purpose of destruction for those who face the grave? Old men hoard wealth & power, turning prejudices and inequalities into tools for gain. In the middle of their schemes & plots, young people get killed. Maybe religious wars and territory wars are our leaders' fears of the grave? It sure seems like they think commiting this craziness will stave off their own death somehow. Perhaps we need very young people in charge who might reduce all of this to extreme sports contests instead.
