War Within

Tawny yellow scotch, cigarette 
smoke thunders in the wars you 
know. Slow death, so cool, no 
greater courage can arise than 
attending wisdom to survive.
We put defeat blow us, as air 
struggles to breath... shall we 
sore to let courage surround 
us or withstand defeat alone.
As we drown at times in 
plumed swimming the angels 
we shall meet, line after line 
of officers with no uniforms 
of defeat.
