The Historical Us

Nature won
nurturing a sum
of mismatched parts.

Upstart nation seeking
its colonization-
independence is overrated.

Deciding battles in
contradiction’s saddles,
swords at the ready
along coaxial

Plains burn
for compatible outcomes,
and weren’t this our pride, I doubt

we’d let ourselves
be led to folly.

But we’re fighting
and frolicking,
watching comrades
come out swinging only
to eventually

sleepy lambs on
our altar that have
no knowledge what

a knife can do
to wool.
