Warfare

Expletives thrown around
Bombs in your game of war
Threats and intimidation
Always the same game

It is the rerun of the series
That was cancelled years ago
Like an unwilling actor
Refusing to give up their role

Controlling the devices
Determined to make me pay
Rolling my eyes once more
I walk away

A chapter ended
Another began
Not sure why this same song different day
Is still at play

Are you waiting for my surrender
There is nothing left you are owed
Take your defeat with dignity
Before karma finally arrives
