men are meant to break

men are meant to break, and so we break them, 
a practice crossing time, and place, and caste; 
men are meant to die, and so we kill them, 
they're built for moments, violence, not to last 

boys are born destructive, angry, reckless, 
and this we can exploit, increasing yields --  
men are meant to break, and so we break them, 
on streets, in jails, at jobs, on 

battlefields
