He told her that he’ll leave
to fight and fend
like all the other men.

Inside, he knows himself that
not all men must fight to fend.
They leave to fight.
They follow the sound –
The sounds of sirens
Calling out and
when they sing, they beckon.

Not all men
who fight to fend
go out to fend –

They fight.

They fight because they know they can
And for that, they love the war;
A mistress some would gladly leave
their wives and husbands for.

She tells them they are worthy
Like no other lover can
with a voice that even steals
the ones who will only fight

To fend.
