"I Need---no I WANT to Win the War"
Every plate of food is a challenge, a triple-dog dare, a gauntlet thrown.
Call it whatever you want, every plate of food is a challenge.
The journey of my Fork from the plate to my mouth is a struggle.
Somehow Atlas tricked me into holding the weight of the world?
But this time he didn't put it on my mind.
No… this time he put it on my Fork.
Every bite is a strategic battle plan,
Every chew lowers the troops morale.
Every swallow is a victory, but not a war won.
