The Winner Loses

by Elvira

Fighting, blindly:

Listening, only
to mortal prophets                                        whose only
god                                          is                     Profit.
Speaking                     in
honeyed tongues,

Hiding                         Poison
and                                                                  Disfigured smiles
from                                                    the Hopeless

For God
Dogma                                    Never
really sure                                           what it’s all about,
Parroting words
Never                                      Really
Prize                                                                And your
Rival                            whispers                     the Same.
