Battle Lines

"What a lovely woman!"**
someone said
when she met me
but real
"What a lovely man!"
is said about chaps who put
their bits into people they shouldn't.

You see why Bushtopia
was so captivating
a philosophy
the idea that good and evil

delineate themselves across
straightly drawn lines like
a children's game at recess.

But children are born knowing
to ostracise the weakest
link goodbye

it's the food of champions
the way of the flesh
no matter how many laws
Parliament enacts.

The real question is,
what sorts of games
do you play

or could you play
or shouldn't you play
when baby,

the bad guy is you?

** I am, though :)
