15 Minute Wars

I’ve only got a second to buckle
down and write–
So, I’ll tell you now, I have no
thought to pick that nasty fight.

Say what you will, I have no doubt
You’d win the knock down fest-
But what is won, that Pyrrhic prize
Is worth what’s lost at best?

If you fight dirty like mob boss #1 or #2,
like De Niro or Marlon Brando,
or the dad-gum terrorists,
Then you win hands down, I will not fight
I have no need to play-
have fun with you– yourself,
I’ll not engage today.
