Fighting a war was the way conquests were made
history should bear witness, but that also changed
each conquerer had a brand new version to dictate
praising heroism and valour for their egoistic stake.
With certain modifications this continues to this day
the vested interests could persist in having their say
exploited also enslaved, the herds are made to pay
as the meek are willing to close their eyes and pray.
Equal footing for all, revolutions have been in vain
human nature persisting in what it could not attain
rebel turned victorious, another despot in disguise
when on top of the pack, staying that way was wise.
