With piercing eyes,

the strategies form.

Ignoring the imagined cries,

accepting that it will be lost in the storm.

 

With vigor and conviction,

mathematics are applied.

Cruelty with no restriction,

sends the cattle like a tide.

 

Applying digits to each,

The Patriot compares values with that of foe.

It may be a reach,

but perhaps then enemy's advance will slow.

 

Unaware of this game of chess,

A broken leader speaks fire into splintered hearts of friends,

shakes them from a mess.

Not knowing of planned ends.

 

Ordinary souls sent to noble sacrificial slaughter.

Dreaming of loved ones' smiles with a shattering sprain,

not knowing they'll never again hear laughter,

will never hear those left behinds' echoing pain.
