An Idiot, But Sane (Poem by Vinh Nguyen)

Just another poem I’d written thus far.  Enjoy!!!

  • It does take a rocket scientist,
  • to figure out why there is war,
  • it does take an idiot,
  • to think war has some meaning.
  • An idiot would think,
  • war is for profit…
  • for fun…
  • a fantasy…
  • some kind of prides…
  • a show…
  • it’s the economy stupid…
  • derange imagination…
  • a revenge for a shame…
  • an adrenaline…
  • for love…
  • and the whole nine yards.
  • You would think what’s an idiot,
  • but such an idiot is right,
  • it does take a rocket scientist,
  • to think war has some meaning!
  • At a boiling point of war,
  • nothing would make sense,
  • nothing is sane about war,
  • war is all about killing.
  • It doesn’t take a rocket scientist,
  • to see a killing is insane,
  • thus an idiot isn’t that different,
  • when witnessing a killing at hand.
  • At a boiling point of war,
  • innocents would be the cannon fodder,
  • collateral damages they would be,
  • additional statistics of insanity.
