War

I witnessed two altercations;

a theme with variations.

 

Men fighting o’er a patch of pavement;

Dogs fighting o’er a piece of excrement.

 

The stakes seemed about equal;

The contestants pitched in battle.

 

With fury they attacked;

Each on the others back.

 

Autos jockeying for the pole position;

Canines chewing on an old emission.

 

Skirmishes with a tragicomic ending;

Car crashes and a lot of foul digesting.

 

As I mentioned I saw two battles;

and the stakes were nearly equal.
