Until They Came

by joetwo

We were at peace

We had plenty

We had riches

We were happy

Until they came

#

Our girls were still girls

Our boys were still here

People stood tall

We had nothing to fear

Until they came

#

We did not know war

Or machine gun’s loud shout

No bombs fell upon

Our crumbling redoubt

Until they came

#

We were so many more

And our eyes did not glare

 To unsee what was glimpsed

The thousand yard stare

Until they came

#

We never did starve

Or turn on our friends

And try to survive

By whatever ends

Until they came

#

We never knew rage

How bad we could get

 Unleashed our revenge

We aren’t done yet

Until they come

#

We slaughtered them all

Then brought it to them

We became what they were

Too much blood lust to stem

Because they came
