The Only Way
We stood in line
ready
for our marching orders
ready
to march
all in order
one step at a time,
or all together
now
just as ordered.
What a blast that was.
What a blast we had
following the orders
of our masters.
It’s the only way
to settle the squabbles
of our masters,
and the grievances
of their paymasters,
just for a time.
Then
they’ll do it again!
Then
we’ll do it again
following our orders.
And again.
and again.
It’s the only way
forward
or back.
