The Lust

Although they fight
Some with honor
Some with fear
Some with majesty
Some with success
Some without honor
Each death
Every tear
Gashed chest
Wounded arm or leg
Pool of blood
Broken bone
Ichors of the flesh
That Ooze upon the floor
Sand in the eye
Arrow in the chest
The consequences
Of the game
The Spectacle for display
Is the fault of lust
In the observer
Not the warrior
Not the victim
Not the sport
Who are victims
Of the lure
Of its power
