The Silence of War

The battle grew thick

and tension palpable

with mystery.

Cold war being a relic of the past

muffled screams contemporary

and a consummate act of mastery.


Silent shots aimed

but not fired

ammunition hoarded

Untested, untried.

Who knows how, when,

what will be required?


The Why was pretty clear

The walls of corruption and conspiracy

were impenetrable,

playing safe in retrospect.

And more invincible than that

was my courage and self-respect.


Inspired by #JusJoJan, prompt-impenetrable
