War

They had wanted to break him.
They wished him to fall.

Like Schrodinger’s cat‘s precarious fate
finally made certain by mere observation,
it was as if when he found out
what others had thought of him,
his wave function collapsed.

And though it might have gone either way,
it went the way of blood.

Who would have foreseen this?
