The Middle Ground

April 16, 2012

Oh let us till the middle ground!
between martyrdom and returning war
because the one will bring your words
as meat for angry mouths
and the other raw dead bones
in silenced starved millenia

I read the contradiction
between the cheek and the sword
but blow me down sister
sowing seeds of treachery
to make it all the realler
is some short term strategy

Did you read those bloody warnings back to front?
If translation’s anything it’s an art
and all the admonitions in the world
even without dripping icons of old adage
won’t make the tale come out
with a happy ending
