Our bodies are like two countries.
Each fighting for its own independence.
With tools that bite and soothe simultaneously.
The only way you can win this war is by amalgamation.
Only then will you be able to conquer and dissolve my granite walls.
Don’t fight for me; fight with me.
Give me a helmet for this battle.
So I can remain unhurt even when I fall into you.
Burn my flags and mount yours on my highest mountain.
Then I will become a part of you.
Ride to the end of my world with all your might.
Set my fields on fire; break my back.
Hold me in obeisance to your will.
Parade my territories in all your splendor.
