Attrition

 

Sat here thinking

with chaos all around…

 

In this together,

family and friends,

some for

some against.

All affected

by the outcome.

All committed.

 

Sat here thinking

with chaos all around…

 

Europe needs us.

Allies need us

to face this thing

together and united

for our futures

and our children’s futures.

 

Sat here thinking

with chaos all around…

 

In a hundred years

will our ancestors

thank us

for what we did today?

Or will they

deem it futile?

 

Sat here thinking

with chaos all around…

 

Will our

enemies be friends,

our friends -

enemies?

Will we ever heal?

Will we ever forget?

 

Sat here thinking

with chaos all around…

 

As day breaks

I look across

the devastation

caused by

pointless

arguments

and impotent

posturing.

 

Sat here thinking

with chaos all around…

 

No retreat.

No surrender.

Taking back

control.

Our ineffective

generals

striving for

their secret goals.

 

Sat here thinking

with chaos all around…

 

If I had a choice,

would I choose

to stay and fight

or leave this

cruel circus

to the carrion crows

of Europe?

 

Sat here thinking

with chaos all around…

 

And then

the shrill

whistle blows

and I travel

to oblivion.

 

Lying here dying

with chaos all around…
