I AM THAT MOUSE

Rookie (Detroit, MI)

World War Negative 3


silent soldier speak to me
speak to me of bloody birth
quiet warrior tell tales of the beginning
born into this empty earth

sobbing soldier call to me
call to me you fallen foe
weeping warrior cry out like a child
tell me of your squandering show

surrendered soldier release to me
release to me your living losses
quitted warrior reveal all of my victories
won alone by carrying crosses

surviving soldier speak to them
speak to them of my fulgurous feat
wayward warrior tell tales of you were beaten
in the dust i recognized retreat

But after my making thou write more true!
