War

I summon you, Beasts of War!

I struggled hard to convince

I cried out from depths of my soul

but nobody winced…

Was it out of guilt

or misplaced expectations

Which I’ll never fulfil

defiance invokes hatred

works overtime to make my

defences crumble, make me see red

It does not happen

Loops of conflict

Get further entangled

It needs dynamite

Not a wisp or a mite

I summon you, Beasts of War!
