Your Pressured Stance Won't Change My Mind

Your Pressured Stance Won't Change My Mind

[ Perhaps Adagio to Pizzicato. Act I ]

Your pressured stance won't change my mind:
it does no good to threaten me.
Beyond this mast, a hostile sea,
I think you've found yourself a bind.

So put away your steel-edged sword.
your pressured stance won't change my mind.
There are these things you can't afford
when block and tackle troops unwind.

These worldly things have made you blind:
you lust for blood, you lust for gold.
Your pressured stance won't change my mind:
this mockery that I behold.

Uncross your eyes from thoughts confined
to arrogance devoid of might.
What violence will this act incite?
Your pressured stance won't change my mind.

The poem might fit into Adagio's Tale.
