The Enemy

Bill Knott

Like everyone I demand to be
Defended unto the death of 
All who defend me, all the 
World's people I command to 
Roundabout me shield me, to 
Fight off the enemy. The 
Theory is if they all stand 
Banded together and wall me 
Safe, there's no one left to 
Be the enemy. Unless I of 
Course start attack, snap-
Ping and shattering my hands 
On your invincible backs.
