on que

Your arrival was full of expectation
A gem of consequence
Waiting in circumstance and bullet holes

You did not disappoint nor
Take hostages - laid out your
Agenda, turned the page

Everything done, said
Right on cue - unable to hold you off
I danced alone

  3. One can assume warfare to be heartless and so act on cue.
