Tick tock

It’s like some campaign of a war

Someone else ignorantly declared

Without giving me an opting out

A war I can’t win or surrender to

No flag of neutrality- to present  

No lifted Pirate flag of ownership

To fend off others by a mere threat  

I’m just a prop; pieces of casualty

And left to be strewn about myself

Internal vestiges of a battleground     

I’m the last piece of a hidden riddle

No King’s horses or men will solve       

Everything will decay, be for naught

Until there’s no evidence… I fought
