Ode to a Fallen Enemy

I gaze upon the moon
Try to count the myriad of stars
And wonder…

Do clones share their thoughts?
Were you individual
Once separated post-vitro

Did you fight loyally
With no thought of death
Serving those who grew you

How many battles, how many foes
Lay shredded by your heavy gun
Before fate drew us together

Our battle – A sealed test-tube moment
Highlighted instants of life
In the midst of death

Now you lie broken before me
A rag doll, soon to decay
And be forgotten
