War by Richard Kelly Tipping

The idealists are being booed off the stage again.
The people want to hear the cynics and the cynics
want war. After this one there’s no before.
The war needs people but the people aren’t quite convinced
they want the war. A compromise at last:
send the idealists to fight!
