False Victory, Relinquished Defeat. - Poem by james tarrant

she lies & deceives as i admit defeat
a victory! and a solemn retreat
for clever were the lies
yet not clever enough to hide
the remains told by time

to the victor belongs no spoils
no victory! no spoils

wielding an axe of ignorance
she lops the hand that fed the ego
she stands innocently wondering
asking why & where did he go
so innocent, now so alone

to the victor belongs no spoils
no! for the victors heart won't toil

from man to man
from land to land
as she extends her poison hand
seeking retribution! for the contribution
that left her heart so spoilt

to the victor belongs no spoils
could victors heart now toil.
now lonely, and undressed
on her own & depressed
i think the victors heart, is a lonely heart, a lonely heart that toils........
