Idled Destruction

Landmines

Claim the

Ability

To disrupt,

To contain,

To destroy,

To supress,

To unhinge,

To contract,

To dismantle,

To idle.

<br />

All while

Remaining

Dormant,

Hidden,

Quiet,

Unknown.

<br />

Oh, what power

Landmines own.

To be able

To disrupt or contain

While

Remaining dormant.

Or

To be able

To destroy or supress

While

Remaining hidden.

Or

To be able

To unhinge or contract

While

Remaining quiet.

Or

To be able

To dismantle or idle

While

Remaining unknown...

<br />

Are we

Not

Like

Landmines?

To be able

To contain

One ability

And

The opposite

Without

Activating

<br />

Until...

<br />

The slightest

Change in

Pressure

Is

What

Forces us

To destroy

By

Unhinging

The

Dismantled creature

That refuses

To remain

Dormant,

Hidden,

Quiet,

And unknown

Anylonger.

<br />

And with that

Unhinged ability

To destroy and dismantle,

The

Dormant,

Hidden,

Quiet,

And unknown

Creature...

Is no longer...
