Peace March

Anticipating a peace march,
it is easy to get
cynical.
How to prepare,
what to wear,
a uniform to confront the uniform.
We mobilize and mobilize
in response to
mobilization.

Yin and Yang.
We and Them.
Spy versus Spy.
Frick and Frack.

The march goes on,
a suicidal drumbeat,
sheep to slaughter,
life and death,
death and life,
to step out of line
is to aid the enemy,
to join the line
is to aid the enemy.

The real problem is
just the shared
enmity.

    Thank you for sharing your poetry Ahellas. Poets here offer such diverse writings and to me it is a pleasure to read each and everyone. I will not be here at the Soup to read from Friday through Monday. I hope you will find mountains of inspiration during that time. I look forward to reading when I return. Have a great weekend. Love, Carol
