a game for men

War: a game with few
winners and many losers
where men find the
space to be monstrous
to witness
and be silent –
......................stay their tongues

......................say nothing of atrocity

a game for heroes
for hard men
for hard ons
Romancers
Chancers
Palais-de-dancers –
..........................where purveyors of family values
..........................hand out the bombs & ammo

a game where
gods play the odds
hedge their bets
figure only in moments
of dread when prayers
are offered –
....................and answered
....................only by chance

a game of
mud and blood
of history and
dates with destiny
booms and bangs
and dreams
that end –
.......................in fearful screams
.......................and the shrapnel of bones

a game of
possessions of gain
and loss where
in the cost-benefit analysis
the winner's Spoils
cost their very soul –
................................and the heart-less come
................................to rule us all

War: a game for
Men Only
where the feminine
Spirit Heart Emotion
has no part or place
but that of victim –
.............................for there is no grace in
.............................this game for men.
