I sunk your battleship

petty little girls
playing battleships
(badly)
one blind stab after
another
until something’s been sunk
even if the prize isn’t worth the effort
you still wage war
every day
just to be able to say
you’ve won
because winning nothing
is better than losing something
and every new face
is just a new boat
to capsize.
