Of Wars And Outcomes


In a war of words, contenders contend
Intent to display verbal prowess
In vocabulary and grammar
The reward – a weird satisfaction
Of spent energies and venom spilled

In a war of nations, soldiers rise
To defend their nations, their causes, their pride
No victor, no vanquished
For all lose in some way
An arm, a leg, a soul, a heart, a conscience, a future

In The War of wars
Shall be one Victor, many vanquished
Of whom I pray you not to be
To take the side of this Victor
Shall be your life, your refuge, your hope
