Our friends are giving up

Our friends are giving up.

They’ve fought

a battle,

they’ve fought too many battles,

they’ve seen the prize slip

and now they are sick

and tired.

This darkling world will see them off,

closing their eyes.

Our friends are bowing out.

They’ve fought

a battle,

they’ve fought too many battles,

and now the fight continues

on top of a dung heap

for scraps of something they no longer believe,

surviving.

This darkling world will see them off,

closing their eyes.

Our friends are dying.

They’ve fought

a battle,

they’ve fought too many battles,

and now it’s only us who can

continue to resist,

while we wacth our struggle

reflected on their eyes

as hazy as they are tired.

This darkling world has seen them off,

closing their eyes.
