Sonnet #12: Prejudices

Applying to indifferences why
The schedule of the fight writes down the law
Release the armour whispers there a cry
The echo breaks itself at what we saw
Two knights around the table at the court
Each other facing mirrors of the past
Just silently they ask them for support
But could not form the proper words at last
Then enemies they grew soon to the other
And centuries from now their war goes on
They never saw each other as their brother
Not mentioned to forget what has been done
        Just language could have built that bridge in minds
        To counter prejudices of all kinds.
