War and Normality (Poem)

History says we’ll
reenact wars
and cherish bloodshed
like an American past time
Our bullets will fly again
with wings of fire
Like doves released
from the palms of pallbearers
A symbol of Peace
So it is the same
for the bullet
that screams freedom
when it leaves the barrel
of your rifle
And like the dove
that flys into the sun
Is the bullet
penetrating your sons
thoughts of you
Invading moments of normality
but what of war is normal?
