SURGEONS OR BUTCHERS

surgeons or butchers

pacifism
it sounds good
in theory
but inside
is a cancer that
that needs surgery
an operation that will
free us both
and if they won’t
lie down
and stay still
for us to carefully
remove the growth
then we’ll
cut them open
standing up
and they can die
with it
either way
some blood
must be shed
and
we can be surgeons
or we can be butchers
but this thing
between us
must be settled
