No Holy Wars for Them
Read more about Nuisance?>
States strong enough to do good are but few,
Their number would seem limited to three,
Good is a thing that they, the great, can do,

To watch a war in nominal alliance,
And when it's over watch the worlds supply
Get parceled out among the winning giants.
God, have You taken cognizance of this?
