HALF MEASURES

We have always been selective,
That’s why we choose to go to war,
Though some I guess soon forget,
What they are fighting for.
So they change their selections,
Because they thought they could win,
But losing is another thought …
Hell that would be a sin.
I guess as your horse jumps over,
It’s a bit late to change your mind,
Because the meeting with the ground,
Is never very kind…
And the horse just keeps on going,
Even though you’re left behind.
