death to pride

inner monologue’s evolving

from serenity to sociopathy

as much an infinity symbol

as we are a blinking exit sign

he says I

refuse to compromise

(and for once he’s not wrong)

a wise woman waits

but never prays

for a consolation prize

eventually

negotiations nullify

he cries “live and let live

I say “live and let die

so let this be life

and let this be death

death… to pride
