Surgical Strikes

Ultimate treatment-
painful pus, 
long accumulated, 
is removed 
and drained out
to heal a chronic wound.

A pocket-pack 
of some howling hounds
like Hydra, hidden 
under the scabs
are all silent--
put to eternal sleep.
The bleeding country,
still bed-ridden, 
heaves for now
a deep sigh of relief.
