Violence is Violence

Violence is Violence--
It need not be a battle in war,
A fight to the death,
Only something to hurt that life-giving breath--
To start loosening that thread before you should be dead



(In Greek Mythology, people's lives were as a thread in the hands of the Fates, immortal beings who would control a person's destiny. They would end a person's life by cutting that thread.)
