Declaration of war

Civil war declaration to change course of conflict
The World Today (ABC, Australia), 16 July 2012

‘Can either of you tell me,’
the conciliator said —

and, though we’d only gone along
for advice on the mortgage,

like ADHD
or a folie a deux

just naming the complaint
its invocation

conjured into being
the need for a painful remedy —

‘when you first noticed
your marriage was failing?’

(c) 2012 Slush Poet
