White Robes, Read and Black Armor – Poem

Bathed in light - Poem by Aaron Blakeley

The lights are fluorescent
The children are bored bathed evenly
White robes, red and black armor

It is a lovely game, Defend!
Block and break brown and tope
skin bathed evenly in
White robes, red and black armor

Little bodies, move and grow
Disciplined with play
skill not yet learned bathed evenly
White robes, red and black armor

They are warriors! Prepare!
the world for us parental beasts
It is hard and bathed evenly in truth.
white light, red rivers, and black earth
