The Fall of the Interventionist

I have been an interventionist
through most part of my life.
I used to take pride
In conflict resolution.
All very well.
But it did me no good.
For in East Bengal
There is a saying:
The benefactor is devoured
by a tiger!
This means: The benefactor
Never benefits.
None of the confrontationists
would appreciate.
As if their prey
Were snatched away!
 
Being well-meaning
I usually found myself
as an interventionist,
a conflict resolver.
 
But I have had my fill.
I would rather make the confrontationists feel
their way out of the mire
of their own making.
 
I do not act the interventionist
Anymore.
