and bug out
amidst the confusion.
Escape and evade,
do whatever it takes
to break contact.
Go to ground
into the indigenous population.
Back tracking is not an option.
Besides, there’s nothing waiting back there,
except the same old enemies.
Always an aggressive push forward.
Take the next step
and always move towards the objective.
Compromise was never an option
and those who demand it,
are really demanding surrender.
A guilty plea,
for a perceived lesser sentence.
Most folks don’t understand
that these things are not negotiable.
They are cornerstones,
in foundations laid by master builders.
Foundations that stand today.
Foundations that we have built
a civilization on;
the same civilization that is now
being undermined and destroyed,
in the name of “Progress”.
Here’s the thing about strong foundations,
even if everything that has been built on them
is burned to the ground,
they still make excellent positions
to fight from.
