I gave in far too many times

to keep peace

to soothe intractable egos

to work benefit for the bystanders

where there was none

but I was meant to stand down and suffer

and the raging egos confronted and suffered

and the bystanders too were meant

to be there to atone as collateral damage...

each of there to do as we may

and were it not for previous failures of nerve

we may well now be repeating

we'd all be standing elsewhere

in others in a separate knot of obligation
