Somebody did it right well done. Honestly I really see nothing wrong with this at all.

Great metaphor by the way, some people need to live by this instead of by the blacks and whites.

Thanks for the brutally honest review of Cost of War it does help.

I loved the flow of this one. I especially liked the second to last stanza. :)

Wow, I somehow stumbled across this and I am surprised at how if you look deep down someone some how or another will either realize or agree completely with several if not all of these lines. It's a very deep poem, but a little 'grayer' not quite darker in subject manor. Though it discusses a much more dull and controlled life of those who live under rule of his 'tyrannical leader' it leads the reader to feel that helplessness and hopelessness, really amazing. This was a great poem, just thought I'd say that :D

We the nameless make no demands

of consciousness,

only sleep, blind and eternal, blind and blissful.

Might possibly be one of my favourite lines ever. That's saying something. I really get a feel of helplessness from this poem. Like why us? A dull life yet seemingly exciting. Yet playing no part in the grand scheme of things. Love it!

"Why not the mountains instead of us?" This is such a wonderful and thought-provoking opening line! Such angst.

"The hammerfalls of demigods." An allusion to Thor or Hephaestus, perhaps?

"All we are is tired dust." Tragically beautiful. :)
