The Winner Loses

by Elvira

War.
Fighting, blindly.
Listening, only
to mortal prophets                            whose only
god                  is                                 Profit.

Speaking in
honeyed tongues,
hiding                          Poison
and                                          Disfigured smiles
from                                        the Hopeless
Kill.

For    God
Country
Dogma               Never
really sure                   what it’s all about,

Parroting         words
Never                          Really
known

Championship
Empire
Prize
And your
Rival             whispers                        the Same.
