One of those instances where a line popped into my head and I followed it from there. I waited to get some feedback before posting this one. I was a little surprised by a couple of the interpretations, though it was easy to see how they came to those conclusions.
We haven’t smidged
Maybe that’s why we come up empty
when looking for the right words
We haven’t had
One opens the door
the other doesn’t step through
My memory slips
however well I know the song
I’m not afraid of being wrong
just of losing when the fallout hits
We haven’t agreed
No one speaks
We like to say the silence screams
but we’re just making excuses
for not understanding
We haven’t decoded
Still the spies
fail their missions
And the war goes on
