(Life)times

Proclaim
All for naught
What counts
Does not add up
Casings do little good
In a firefight

Bend and bend
Twist and contort
Eventually is such an easy
Term to rely on
A blank slate
Always within reach

Still we cut down
Our own limbs
Actions of appeasement
As contradictory
As the lead lifelines
We save for ourselves

It’s much more comfortable this way
