A lament about the shortcomings of humans that allow them to be goaded into tribal notions of nationalism, xenophobia, isolation and ultimately violence.

Contingency plans laid to waste
Aware of guilt, a bulwark is raised
On that hill, prepared to die for pride

People caged like beasts
Walled safety internecine
Withstand the test of time
Atrocities unseen
Atrocities unseen
