    whether a handsome scar or physical defect
    what is a string except an inadequate wire
    to slip softly through soft tissue at the neck
    and what is a hand but a weakened plier

    where blood flows in the human mesh
    to hone fine-edged carbon near to life
    breathing tempered mayhem to open flesh
    what is a spear except an effective knife

    what is a hammer but a better fist
    to bend fire reddened steel into metal bone
    setting upon the oiled hinge at the wrist
    and, what is a bullet except a better stone

    While metaphors are what I hope are your tools, this poem is prolific none the less. The Bible does speak of a time when plow share will be wieleded into weapons, but he also speaks of the time when the weapons will be wielded into plowshares!
    Peace and Tranquility...your muse seems to be the Spirit of conflict?

    Art of War

    The art of war is often lost on making the difference in what is fair and what is not--what is right and what is wrong--the art of war ultmately turns on who is alive and who is dead which is often decided by who has the more effective weapons--Ra

    I have been most remiss--I am alive and well now and resituated with Konica Business Technologies--I'll send you the new phone number--by the way I am doing an entire treatise on war that I am sure once I reconsider it in the light of humanity will even chill my spine--Ra
