Neither Hawk Nor Dove: A "Poem"

I'm neither
hawk nor dove.

Reasons for war
are legion
but not necessarily
good reasons.

There is just war
but I'm not sure
I've seen it
in my lifetime...

When war happens
it should be decisive
and declared.

Not carried away
by major players
with tides of altruism
into world conflicts
leading to tyranny
or disaster
maybe both.

The best foreign policy
is friendly
and selfish.

Counter intuitive it is
but a foreign policy
of "selfishness"
rather than "altruism"
usually serves our
neighbor-nations best.
