The Cycle

A war fractures the community

sending many to a new land

survivors coalesced in a boat

colloquial talented people taking a stand

The journey was long

many died on the way

working the land was difficult

many refusing to stay

Each generation adapted

lifting the next a little higher

living in prosperity

gathering all they could aquire

Greed took over

the cycle began again

war destroyed their civilization

as they fought against kin

A small group flees

filling a boat

in search of a new home

where again there is hope
