Crossfire by William Wright, Jr.

So closely knit

Is the brave new world

The daily crossfire

We foolishly brave

 

Bound and bowered

We strive for war

For the quarrels

That flood

The purest of hearts

 

All that remains

Are the wavering scores

Who writhe in peril

At the lash

Of troubling verse

 

So closely knit, we stir

To our quiet demise

Hollow

Yet swollen with words
