KEEP THIS PEACE

Seasoned veterans of an ongoing war.
You abhor the strategy but glad
the casualty count stands at two.
Enemy combatants who have seen
the futility of fighting, looking to right
the ship and sail to calmer seas.
We’ve cut loose the animosity
and stowed away the pomposity,
hoping to stand on the same solid ground.
You’ve found the terms of this truce
satisfactory and you see sincerity
where deception could have festered.
Sequestered and locked in negotiations,
at the very least we’ll keep this peace!
