       Technical Issues

The diplomats could not agree
On who’s a friend or enemy,
Their comfort zones had been upset
To give without enough to get,
And so, for now, war wages on,
Their words are not agreed upon,
Support was spoken for each side
Who fight to kill as wars provide,
But other parasites in war
Who joined to influence the score,
Are spoken with unwelcome words
By one but not all others heard,
So now, the conversation’s stalled,
But neither side is much appalled,
I wonder, though, why nothing’s said
For all the half-a-million dead.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
