The Scale Of A Full Tin

by window sill
yet closed
I smoke my pipe
and must stand outside
this guardian of advanced age
with no wisdom of sage
I say to her all my love
to send away
the men I love
to only bring to you
the flame of love
for in the heat of battle
your vision I carry
that this last war
be one closed eye
to pull me through
its up to you
