Battle Lights III

treat petty foes like treats or petit fours
don’t devote your core energy or time to engaging them
and never let them divert your zeal or lead you to a bitter meal

simply ignore their ostentation
stay sharp and your smarts will win you the little wars

you can even observe their self-abnegation
for they often crumble under their self-inflicted weight of negativity
just like the sweet tragedy of an after dinner spectacle
