chhi wu wen traveled explosions west

mongol hordes conquer and swarm,

genoese sailed and visiting  maffeo saw

took it to his home,

seeds of destruction, causation of war,

power  and inconsideration,

the ability to detonate,

arbitration’s and negotiations

no longer needed,

seen to be words drawn out

paper and conversation,

song dynasty powder

textured and coarse,

limber minds sought and put it

to many a purpose,

cycles of war and invasion born,

and as our history we look back

at what was hope that brought

danger,

and it lessens our comfort here
