The Play’s the Thing

Needless waste of ruined lives
rippling into vast tragic waves.
Because?
“That’s how the game is played.”
That real lives are lost
never enters the master frame.
Whose shame?
We arrogant cocksure are to blame
for flags of false honor,
caught up in some fathers’ jolly old feud.
Letting ignorant craven carve our name,
fashion the rules.
What has this folly cost?
Paid by whom?
