Piece Talks



You were looking so adventurous

And I was seeking a bit of good fun

But you made it seem more dangerous

Like a fight to be fought and won


Like a sovereign state intact

Boundaries drawn in hard line

I cannot deny the stiffening fact

Or greed to make your land mine


My south is greatly expanding

And it needs to find a new home

Your mountains large and commanding

A great space in which to roam


Your eyes beg that I come to you

But, alas, you won’t give the order

And the verdant valley in my view

Has your troops massed at the border


No want to overthrow government

Or succeed at starting a coup

It is just a part of me that’s meant

To free guarded parts of you


My envoy coos at you sweetly

My idea of ‘piece’ to you belie

In the hopes to pen a treaty

Or at least insert a spy


I hope my skills at détente

And a bit of liquid persuasion

Will win me what I really want

Stalwart plans for an invasion
