Toy Soldiers 

You can be surrounded by caring people

But too guarded to know it.

Wanting to share territory

until uninvited cowardice causes emotional blindness.

An eventful day can leave you with nothing to talk about 

as warmongers protect the tongue

and barricade the lips.

Muted your throat with a finger’s flick.

The enemy dropped the bomb that is the esophageal lump .

Lieutenant advises to hide away

due to unclear skies.

Losing the war because 

toy soldiers only play 

when it’s fair-weathered.
