1172 - Opposing Forces

Opposing Forces

Some folk like to fight.
Like vegetarianism,
Violence is a choice.

The nighttime launching
Of sharp and flaming missiles
Is a futile thing.

Some just want to fight—
Choose your weapons carefully;
Choose your arena.

1171 - Bad Move

Bad Move

There was a young maiden called Marion,
Who always seemed to be marryin'.
Once the knot was tied
They mysteriously died—
Much to the delight of the carrion.
