Massacred villages,
as a solution to the problem.
Nothing like erupting another war-zone,
with obedient pilots to operate your destructive drones.
Behind the trigger,
labelled heroes,
but only murder goes further.

Pandora’s box,
your legacy compares to Pandora’s box,
cascading from your inflicted agonies
are every evil-spirited and devastating tragedies.

History repeats itself,
perhaps not today,
perhaps not tomorrow,
but with every empire shall be a downfall that follows.
