Making the Cut

Creative thoughts are lost among
the droning drowning din
of battle to ascend a rung
and rake the bennies in

but every now and then I get
a chance to sit and jot
the few words that I don't forget
while fighting for that spot

a grizzled veteran of war
I carry on despite
the code of conduct I deplore
ignoring flags of white

my fuel is running way too low
to fall behind the line
it's hard to overcome a foe
that savors blood like wine.
