Flames of War



War started in the gulf today,

and I sit in contemplation,

In front of my cozy fireplace.


The night is closing softly around me,

As I watch a log alive, yet dying,

With the ever changing, warring flames.


Flames ever -- fighting,

To see which has the greatest capacity to control and consume

The area that is their source of existence.


Until, consuming it completely, even the flames die;

Leaving only glowing embers, and then only ash and dust.

Cold -- Lifeless -- Ugly!
