Life During War Time (*)

They traded blood, bled, leapt hurdled, in war, toiled
Thundered subtle, explosions rubble erupt and boils
Flanked frigid conditions, crossed covert, admission where seas froze
Invaded nation’s capital, caravan arriving in droves

Misfit miscreants they flicker like a fire fly
they can stimulate the facts til they simulate a lie

left the cocoon in ruin, spurned from the flame of confusion
tapping the light as a wheel in the spoke promising fire then exhaling smoke.


Embracing the action, mere fraction of faction, poised penitent pose
In assassins pace, soldiers faced fetid burnt skin loose hue of rose
Pre-emptive mental lapse, hands clasped elapsed fast as fingers exposed
Attack from treetop canopy lands enemy, as battalions camp quiet below


Misfit miscreants they flicker like a fire fly
you can stimulate the facts til you simulate a lie

left the cocoon in ruin, spurned from the flame of confusion
tapping the light as a wheel in the spoke promising fire then exhaling smoke.



Slow pace laced the forest base as night slid its shade in slow
Bowed down, fertile feeding ground, sound sleeps, insurgency grows
Arose from the closed fence tense, electrical events stamps it closed
Bloated hose grows, distorted rubber clothes expand simmer, repose


Misfit miscreants they flicker like a fire fly
you can stimulate the facts til you simulate a lie

left the cocoon in ruin, spurned from the flame of confusion
tapping the light as a wheel in the spoke promising fire then exhaling smoke.



Escape to the south, weather reaps, pouts cloud laden maiden of old.
Mouth dry, estuary high, water fall, fallen blows multi bullet holes
The sun rips grips the tender tips of their eyelid down to their toes.
Over fortnight flight, escape the passing plight, packed up and drove


Misfit miscreants they flicker like a fire fly
you can stimulate the facts til you simulate a lie

left the cocoon in ruin, spurned from the flame of confusion
tapping the light as a wheel in the spoke promising fire then exhaling smoke.



Lengthened evening light highlights final plight, compete with those
Whose feet stayed dry under fire fight, contrite and festering wound grows
To an aching stench, bottled bench water and henchman clench their toes
Cramps, limit the stampede anxious repeat of goose steps aligned in tight knit rows


Misfit miscreants they flicker like a fire fly
you can stimulate the facts til you simulate a lie

left the cocoon in ruin, spurned from the flame of confusion
tapping the light as a wheel in the spoke promising fire then exhaling smoke.



Years turn years, tripped memories and cradled fears as time lifts, sinks and woes
Lacking feet and such, much, touched the hearts and must fuss with heroes
Flowers, laid at monument head, rows symmetrical as the life it shows
What the carnal cryptic gust, ashes spew ashes, withers to dust as the saying goes.
