In a boxing match,
Two boxers are fighting
With each wanting to win.
With their fight,
People die. Their corps are seen
Scattered. They are off both civilian
Blow after blow is landed,
Manoeuvre after manoeuvre is performed
Their drive to win,
Ends up inflicting injuries to their bodies.
Widows are created and orphans are made.
Siblings are lost and civilians slaughtered like animals.
In the end, one gives in
There is a victor.
But at what cost did this victory occur?
How many are left homeless?
How many are killed?
How many lose their loved ones?
But to the head,
The prize is wonderful. Pride has been
asserted at the cost of human lives.
