Machine hearts

“I want to be a soldier!”

It’s been his song since childhood

Inspired by Batman

And the other guy who gums and ‘degums’ himself from buildings to save a girl in danger

Little did he know that soldiers wear uniforms

Much larger than the passion to defend the defenseless

It’s only from high up here

Above the screams of innocent civilians

Does he realize how noble ambitions can be driven into the heat of madness
