Favorite Quote:
"Sometimes when you love someone, you have to let them go."
"Don't let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game."

Mind-warped machines break formation,
Manually performing the design of the United States monarchy.
Many targeted through the eyes of the machicolation
Marching not to the adrenaline rushes that keep them alive, but
Moving along the factory line that consumes and controls.
Made military men sacrificed at will.
More than just a duty, a mandatory lifestyle.

I am enlisting in the United States Air Force in March 2013 and this poem really just shows that even people that believe that soldiers are mindless robots can become a key part of the machine.
