The God of War or Spirit of Life?



Contrast the two images.

Worship of technology
and the worship
of life
nature
spirit

Machines
big trucks
heavy equipment
cover the earth
in cement
bury ourselves
we are dead
in spirit
as we prepare
for war

High tech
on Earth
and in space
full spectrum
ignorance

Boy toys
war games
practice killing
build a shrine
to war
a Navy base
float the war
out onto the sea
kill the dolphins
and whales
with sonar
an altar
of madness
and death

The dance of life
joy
love
clapping
stomping
moving
in harmony
with
the ebb
and flow
of nature

Smile
or
frown
which is
in your town?
