hypothetical speech from the nobel peace prize winner

somewhere today
in the here and now
in the world as it is
a young soldier
lays down arms
in exchange for court martial
disobeying orders to take
another human’s
hesitant yet confident yet omnipresent
turning eyes
into the fire
of a president
commanding officers
media carnivores

refusing to succumb
in the hypocrisy
of conventional wisdom
