Sucking on a nostril

Appeasing my foe with

overzealous and thus

insincere, boorish

thin disatisfactory

reassurances. Bowing

scraping my most sincere

commitment to non-violent

intervention at this

watershed in the process.

Well, what d’you reckon they made of that?

Sage and prudent, perhaps

A bit gushing, retreat

In the face of hassle?

Then again there may be

Ideological or

Theological blocks.

One cannot discount

Sheer cowardice in

The face of the enemy.

Then there is the absence

Of teeth to be taken

Into consideration.
