The Palatable Lesson

Two warriors went to fight a war
unaware that they might meet
both had different points of view
and never known defeat

Both highly skilled in combat
had studied all the rules of fear
which without it came poor strategy
a numbers game of disappear

The early morning battle field
sparkling dew of sunlight beauty
where best laid plans depended on
a common sense of duty

In later years of deep reflection
so much a wiser grasp of ways
without the banquets of diplomacy
you feast the cold soup of lost days
