Turkey in the Lie

Into conflict descend
eager and delighted
an eagle in its aerie
plunging sudden into combat
attack, wrangle, spar
crush, kill, destroy
talons physical and verbal
war cries online
senseless twittering tits
always in opposition
happiest there in fact
it is this
the happiness they pursue
a thing never gained
in pursuit directly
without much self-questioning
but into conflict
with themselves
they refuse to engage
cognitive dissonance heals their wounds
as they refuse
acknowledgement of the self-inflicted
violence upon their psyche
laid into themselves
by their own claws
in the end
ambivalence lays fire to the fuse
jumping and spitting angrily to destination
a spectacular explosion of feathers
and naught but a dead chicken, naked
