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

reconciliation:
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.
