Writers' Showcase

by Michael S. Collins

Really, if you think about it
This was the most perfect of wars
Everybody lost,
Everybody is broke,
Nobody need pay for everyone is dead.
I rate the struggle 10/10 for effort,
1/10 for decency,
10/10 for the film rights,
0/10 for their not being any film to make.
I had a nightmare the other night,
It seemed we were winning the war.
What a dreadful fright!
Thankfully, I woke up later and saw
That the deadlock between the sides
Was still in place.
How frightful to dream of success
That would take away any chances
Of Promotion to General!
