at a glance
I say
gingerbread

at a glance
I say
gnomes
or dwarves
or ants
all busy busy

I would not say
soldiers

I would not say
destruction

this is
no
fairy-tale

no sow shite
no
Cinderella

just men
who clear the mines

men

who make it
safe
for other men
to blow up
other men

I wish
sometimes for . . .

sometimes
for gingerbread
