At War

At War

conflicts cause confusion
words thrown like punches
accusations jab at one another
strategies dance to seek advantage
more than win a friend

words wage war
threats attempt to flank opponents
rhetoric marches forces forward
amassing arsenals of lethal language
rather than calm a foe

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
