1712

Ghosts at the battlefield of Antietam.

GHOST: A war can only be waged
In a climate of profound belief.

GHOST: When irony kicks belief in the nuts, though,
Then also is it possible for ironists to pose as believers
And tell the lies that stir women to confusion.

GHOST: It is only necessary to lie
To start a war.

GHOST: Wars start when there is a surplus of men.

GHOST: There is a surplus of men in China.

GHOST: There is a surplus of men in India.

GHOST: There is a surplus of men in the White House.

GHOST: It is only necessary to lie
To excel in marketing.

GHOST: It is only necessary to lie to yourself
To excel in journalism.

GHOST: It is only necessary to die
Once.

GHOST: A city can die and be reborn.
During the great fire of London Samuel Pepys
Dug up his gold coins from his courtyard.

GHOST: Alex Chilton sat on his porch.

GHOST: Everybody broke open:
Blind, diabetic, abandoned.

GHOST: In a time of rational discourse
Insight is dimly perceived to be beyond reason,
And war comes looking for sugar to burn.

GHOST: It is normal to have spiritual feelings.

GHOST: It is normal to feel anxiety
In the presence of difference.

GHOST: It is normal to want a very large burger.

GHOST: It is normal to do nothing.

GHOST: It is normal to take advantage
Of who cannot defend themselves.

GHOST: It is normal, it is normal, it is absolutely normal.
