The Goddess of war makes her stand in the upper skies,
pitting man and machine in deadly battle.
Hazy colours of blue and grey make way for burning
fire and pyres of smoke.
Up here she knows no mercy as men die
in a second to please her lust for death.
No one can beat her as she is immortal and ubiquitous.
Make just one mistake and she’ll take you so that you’ll burn in hell.
Aircraft roll and tumble in her pre-ordained battle shooting
shells and missiles in a crazy frenzy. Soon the sky is empty
and the Goddess of war shows her beauty in a dazzling
skyscape with the white clouds turning golden in the dying light.
