The Conflict

The visitor smirked

laughing at the people’s dissent

they paid the ultimate price

after giving consent

It came so swiftly

many were snug in bed

no one could have imagined

where they were being led

A world of confusion

filled with deceit

a daily struggle

trying to find something to eat

There were many

who chose to fight

gaining some ground

searching for the light

The visitor thought

how silly the people were

to think they could defeat

an issue with no cure

There was another visitor

one who stood on a hill

who smiled with hope

there would be no surrender of will

Darkness and light

a continuous struggle

only one can win

putting an end to the trouble

Each visitor leaves

there will be another day

the sun continues to rise

as the visitors go their separate ways
