ON JUDGING ENEMIES

Out our bedroom window
In the medieval castle
I pictured the enemy
Making a surge up the hill

All those centuries ago
Found myself wondering
How the doge decided
Which armies were significant

Which trivial enough
They could be dispatched
With minimal man-power
Would recede like cowards
