Not so much a battle as it is a war
Turned upside down and inside out
Like blood, guts, and gore
-They call it progress-
It’s not like it used to be
A pecking order based on might
Has been replaced for the thing that is right
For whom for whom for whom?
Did you take longitude into account?
Me thinks we can’t let this play out
Jeers jeers jeers from every row
“Have you no compass for these things you know?”
And then with mirror held high I asked
"When were you assigned teleology as your task?"
…her reflection slumped in a very grey light
And again the fire question bloomed
