Trigger Warning

It has been said
that terrorism
is the war of the poor.
And war
is the terrorism of the rich
soldiers are state terrorists.

The dead and maimed can’t tell
the difference.
Perhaps the only difference
is the scale
of destruction
and wealth
from those owners
of the means of destruction.

So does that make workers
soldiers of terrorists
and culpable
either way.

Soldiers versus terrorist.
Terrorists versus soldiers.
Who will win their wars.
