Verbal Shots Taken and Given in Equal Measure

                     The First Fingers Pointing with Accusations and Presumptions,

Acidic Words Punctuated By Cold Stares

                     Words of Warning, a Collective Chest Thumping of Bloodthirsty Ogres on Opposing Sides.

The Mounting of Ironclads in Far Off Waters,

                       a Study of Provocation vs Intent.

Chessmatch with Death’s Smiling Face,

                            In Wait Patiently for Inevitable Next Move,

Timing, Mere Seconds Frozen that Pass with Great Reluctance,

                      Tension ever so Palpable.

Steely Nerves Held True,

                      Trained Hands above Instruments of Mass Death await the beckoning.
