Acceptable as Preemption

forged in the backroom

effectively locking out



a conspiracy of collusion

as appeals for some rational

return to sanity

are considered to be

the ravings of loons

it's loony to speak out

it's crazy to point out

the crimes of human indecency

for torture and killing

on a global scale

are deemed to be the equivalent

of justice

thus madness becomes acceptable

as preemption
