after Sun Tzu

He waits and watches
Until the bodies of his enemies
Float past, on down the gentle
River out to sea. The bloated
Stench of them satisfies his
Rage such a long time on
From their original sins. He
Had done nothing but infiltrate
Their camp with subtle division,
Words delivered by any means
Without showing his face. They
Destroyed themselves, and now
The country is free of them.
War can be a gentle art.
