An Ego Needs An Enemy

An ego needs an enemy to keep itself sustained.
In order to survive, it must attack, defend, resist.
Ebola, Iraq, Gaza, poverty, the war on drugs and crime,
The target may vary, but the outcome never does.
By taking up arms against any perceived villain,
In a misguided attempt at freedom, peace, health and happiness,
One simply guarantees the fight will never end.
