POEM| The Spoils of War

The spoils of war
have let me in a trance
I’m shaken from loss
but elated by the riches

I now possess
Who knew such good
could come from bad
I should be ashamed
for I feel no guilt
I prepared for this
all my life
so I might as well

enjoy while I can
for I know this body
will fight again soon
