oh the night,
the beautiful glamorous night
give to me your secrets
and i will tell you mine
whisper in my ear
all that is ugly
and let us make a cocoon
for the butterfly

did someone call 911?
metaphor for security
wrapped in safety
while thousands upon thousands upon thousands
remember those numbers
in another way
mission accomplished
agenda completed
sorties have landed
soldiers home safe
except for the trauma
hiding behind red rimmed, shallow eyes
except for the veil of truth
shattered by corpses and those
who won't stop wailing
(make them stop)
except for the rally cries
of the allies
as they sail on to
their next victory
