at war with self

At war with self
Fighting jet lag
Spirit sags
Hunger pangs
Pain everywhere
Body being summarily
Put through rigors
Of ruthless pressure
Points, massages
Kneading by curt
Pairs of hands
Severity being
The byword even
As I bite back
Painful yelps
Half hearted
Cries- they keep
On mete(ing)
What they’ve
Been trained
To do, give pain
For greater good
For my body and
For what’s in my
Mind’s bag!
