10 Feb 2017 – Bivouac

For war, unfitted!
For such strife – so unprepared!
You dream you’re fighting
“Good and Evil?” “Black and White?”
And all is simple?

What’s that they told you?
“Good Guys here and Bad Guys there?”
“False Christs incarnate
hold our halls of power now,
but you can stop them!?”

Two plastic puppies
mounted on magnetic bits
chase one another,
polarized so they repel,
and will – forever.

Here all are playthings:
everyone the eye can see,
newspapers name, and
no one spots the hidden base
where hatred bivouacs.
