War on the horizon

Vengeance cloaked behind a hill

Steel no longer sheathed

As it trembles for a kill

The Earth begins to quake

With a thousand in line steps

Cries ring through the air

"To Victory or to our death"

Army vs Army

Revenge vs greed

Last breaths have been taken

For mercy the fallen plead

Like axes plunged in tree trunks

Family trees begin to fall

Generational deforestation

Human beings, our own downfall.
