An Unconventional Haiku for an Unconventional War

Jase Marshall

My mind is at war

My heart’s the adversary

Concluding in gore

Rhetoric for mind

Compassion as the heart’s gun

No treaty is signed

The war rages on

Neurons against arteries

‘Til all hope is gone

How can you decide

Which corps gains your loyalty

Has one of them lied

Brain led by ration

Such a beautiful battle

Heart moved with passion

My soul is at war

The casualties are massive

I’m lost evermore
