April 3, 2015

A deal was struck,
announced, applauded –
a conflict avoided,
for now, for the future

warmongers on the left
and on the right,
vanquished, silenced,
disarmed, for the present

an elected leader deposed,
an embassy seized, occupied,
both wrong, both wronged –

and hope for a new balance,
a re-calibration –
possibility works well
as a bargaining chip.
