Our Greatest Enemies

The greatest enemies are not terrorism and drugs.
Many men and women die fighting these foes.
But the greatest enemies have infiltrated over time,
and become intrinsic to the fabric of our country.
The greatest enemies are ignorance and apathy.
Men and women toil and die to fight these.
And a proud and haughty populous announces
“I don’t know about that, nor do I care.”
We accept and believe without any proof,
we allow transgressions for “the greater good”
but we don’t care enough to know what we’ve lost
or in which direction we’re hastily herded.
