no good demons

war creates demons;
profound monsters,
they keep us awake
at night
hiding under our beds;
and so we rally,
to kill them with fire,
as we learn
there are no good demons;
and peace,
it does not make angels
of the darkness we created
when we turned out the light;
all that remains now
is to kill them all.
