Who Was It Who Said …

Who was it who said …
“All’s fair in love and war” ?
a saying that’s been swaying our days
and delaying the way

Who was it who said …
“All’s fair in love and war” !?
was it a man who’s never been loved
certainly not said by someone in love

Who said, “All’s fair in love and war”
was it a woman in love
or a man in war, torn, foreign land

When it was said …
were they laying in love or lying in hate
and why did it survive to this date

A saying that’s been swaying our ways,
words that are said when everything’s dead …
“All’s fair in love and war”
said as if it was a carousel, a merry-go-round
of life’s ups and downs
justifying sounds that pare our lives down
to stick figures that kindle not love, but inflame
a false fate … hate

Hearts stuck with words taken at face value
deface the truth that if all live fair in …
love
there will be, no more …
war
