Clash of Titans

A poem comprised of many haikus stringed together.

There was a battle
Fought between two grand armies
Atop a great hill.

The battle was one
Of two ideologies.
The West versus East.

One army advanced
In tanks of red, white, and blue.
Fighting for freedom.

The other army
Flew the Soviet banner.
The Red Communists.

Opposite forces
Meet on the field of battle
Atop a great hill.

The Yanks fired first,
Mortar shells flew o'er the hill,
Landing on the reds.

The response was quick.
Soviet tanks fired back,
Blackening the sky.

The battle went on.
It went on for days and days,
'Till there was nothing.

In modern warfare,
As the Yanks and Reds both learned,
No one ever wins.
