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
