Nothing to do with Erica’s erotica,
mind here is behind
a barbed wire.
Building fortress around spring
and cutting ideas to hedge war
is all a part of simulation exercise.
They do it well in their
steel helmets and straight jackets.
The lesser they think and barricade
free breathing, the higher they climb
their ladders to nowhere.
Serving pot bellies
and leaving no ground to refute
that down there it is all so well.
The squalor around ivory tower
presents erotica of another kind.
Here they do not simulate
a survival exercise,
they simply die of hunger
for they have no time
to fake war in peace
and peace in time to go to war.
A foreplay of sorts
that Erica never thought of.
