They Shook Hands – 14th November 2022

Smiling for the camera
Deceptive poker plays
Air pushed in translation
No thunder today
Arm wrestle the future
Knives behind backs
Until advantage found
In what the other lacks
Back to the big oak table
For diplomatic fire
Promises made and broken
As new demands require
All the hands now shaken
To sighs of relief
Yet rendered in denial
And insincere belief

Let me know your thoughts
