Once more, once more into the fray
but what the poet didn’t say
was once that fray is overcome
you’ll probably face another one.
It seems for some the fray’s eternal
whether inner or external.
for fray is just another term
for strife and every breath confirms
that fray is just around the bend
waiting for you once again,
once more, once more until you say
‘no more, no more into the fray.’
