ARENAS

Dog fights, cock fights
matches made by men
Tickets bought by all,
gathered in, just so,
for the privilege
of watching the blood flow

Bets made by men…
… and tickets sold again

Wars are planned by someone
No tickets can be bought here
Players are just issued a gun
A question in my mind…
Are there Gods of another sphere
who sport in wars of humankind…?
