Making peace

So comes love
to the table
to negotiate
a peace
a settlement
sign a treaty
of sorts

A location
has been identified
where axes
may be buried
no questions asked
it’s really quite simple
no differences
are too big
that they cannot
be overcome
by lovers

where there’s
a will there’s
either murder
or a way
but our life
is not film noir
nor are we
an entertainment
so let’s stick to what
we know best
let’s make love
as though there
were no tomorrow
because who knows ?
