The Fight Syndrome

Human knowledge is ever expanding...
Societies try to move away from the power of the sword
to the power of vote.
But the fight syndrome
would not leave humans.

We still say
political parties are fighting an election.
Where is the room for a fight,
by the way?
Vote is to judge people's mood,
principles to be put in action
for a certain period.
But we call it a fight.

Media beats the drum for the fight.
And we all wait with bated breath
who wins in the "battle"
of the political gladiators
in the amphitheater of elections.

Alas! Human beings will never unlearn
the fight syndrome!
