Poetry, A-team style

Work Text:

Once as soldiers
Now just men
Greater than before
But still with loss

Beware the chimera
Fata morgana
Forever changing smile
The permanent apparition

Avow the stone man
Metal heart beating
One hand for compassion
The other for the droll.

Marvel in the flitting wings
Of unbalanced realism
And misrecollected cognizance
In guileless abandon

Experience the master player
Engineer, Inventor, and Schemer
Forever with a plan
With no coincidences

Protect the innocent.
Help the honest.
Steady the upright.
Brave the fire.
