the other god

wars of victory and loss fuel the earth.
although Vulcan remains in silence
Mars, the other god, gently combs his mane of fire.
an army of roaring men
is waiting for the last call
coming forth from the skies.
and, at the first thunder howl,
the men march on to the battlefield.
and although the earth was bound in flames,
Mars, the god of war, wields his iron spear
inciting them with words of might
but refusing to participate
in the slaughter of those not of his kin.
