Man climbing man

War is declared 
the field is set
blood-filled pawns on a chess set
with the flag raised and weapons primed
for our disposable heroes 
their time is nye

the stone cross roads and the moistest fells
warmed from the flames of hell
a piercing stare across the room 
office politics contempt and gloom

man climbing man
the mountain to the alpha male
man climbing man
bullying on a sliding scale

violent words and painful cries
webs of sin and deadly lies
the new boy blues will settle in
who cares what race or fat or thin

don’t go crying to the boss
your tearful eyes cost you your job
portraying weakness and insomnia
bloodshot breath with a sour spike

man climbing man
the mountain to the alpha male
man climbing man
bullying on a sliding scale
