The Army

the silence between enemy hordes before the call
and the horns the players enter the arena with
the most powerful man in the universe issues blue cards
based on what he alone can observe how he feels
if his rulings seemed a little absurd

well thats your deal
that is how you simmer
the overheated bits
and there they are
stamped on the cards
the planned myth
and the tendency to
treat each moment
as something
you could never
argue with

the rules are stamped on the skin or your arse
