Long night

No slumber tonight.

The night’s kiss

comes softly, at

a price. Over

wrought and expensive,

a modern tale.

Boredom and starvation,

an evening’s supper.

And through it

all, enduring back

pain, that reminder

that sometimes the

cost just isn’t

worth the asking.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
