The Metaphor War

the metaphor
war is the source of the target
the literal
war instead of the opposite
in the literal
war enemy are killed to destabilize
nations in the metaphor
war enemy can not be
found nor defeated only engaged

into the literal
war that stands for it
extending the metaphor
war resistance to occupying
powers is terrorism
thus the literal
war reinforces the metaphor war

the metaphor
war is not a war
its enemy is not a nation
its enemy is enigma
its violence semantic

the literal
war is a war literally
its violence
