Russian Tea

tea mugTwo gray-haired men
Talking in low tones
Over a cup of tea
Striving to protect their worlds
They smile tightly at each other
Politely pretending to listen
Nodding mechanically, now and then
Agreeing aloud
While silently disagreeing
Tea gets colder
The power struggle continues
More lies told
Nothing changes
A war begins
Somewhere
