Syllogistic Verse

All war is based in deception (cfr. Sun Tzu, The Art of War.)

Definition of deception: the practice of deliberately making somebody believe things that are not true. An act, a trick or device intended to deceive somebody.

Thus, all war is based in metaphor.

All war necessarily perfects itself in poetry.

Poetry (since indefinable) is the sense of seduction.

Therefore, all war is the storytelling of seduction

and seduction is the nature of war.
