Ode Of War
Patrick Torcasio, Grade 8, Flinders Christian Community College
The General and I run through the bushes,
As fast as a leopard.
Our army behind us, huffing and puffing like the Big Bad Wolf.
Then suddenly, we see across the field, who else but the Spanish.
"Charge" we yell and our men rush from behind us.
The cavalry up first, infantry second.
The archers are firing at will and artillery firing to kill.
Then out of nowhere comes a terrible high pitched voice.
"Boys it's time for dinner."
"No " we say, "We are almost finished."
(After being threatened with a grounding)
We go inside for dinner.
