Two sides ~ poem by Rick Gwyn

Two sides

Two opinions

One solution

Then the plot thickens

Both sides recruit

Both sides bribe

One condition

A cash card to swipe

Two becomes five

Five becomes ten

Then conscription

Assemble the men

Phone calls relayed

Words offensive

Soon contradiction

Turns to aggressive

Warnings fired

Strength displayed

Mistaken provocation

It's now time to invade

Both sides lose

Neither will win

Decreased population

Their future has turned grim
