As he prepares to march to war,

She also dons the suit

That sparks her rise from fiery lies,

Mein Kampf beneath her boot.

Now spilling from the ashes

Of incinerated dreams,

She seeks to thaw her frozen maw—

Release her ancient screams.

New lines upon her face, a map,

But where does her road end?

The icy fire of fierce desire?

The unforgiving friend?

Slogging onward through the mud,

Singing, bleeding, laughing, retching…

Does Rosie flex her pecs in might,

Or is she merely stretching?
