It's War

by Gerrit Egnew

A burst of wild rashness takes
the minds of fighters bored.
They plot, they plan to make offense
against the raging horde.

Mobilizing for the great fight
the heroes they make haste.
With so much trouble being took,
time is not to waste.

Pouring out of barracks strong;
arranged in battle rows.
Weapons arrayed: stakes, ski poles,
a branch, a broom, two hoes.

Two lines ready to strike upon
the deadly hostile force.
Clammy hand grips slipp'ry stake:
along the path they course.

Wild cries ring out across the land,
emboldened fighters charge.
They fall upon the dreaded foe,
vicious anger they discharge.

Green flesh meets wild, whipping stakes
and falls before the mob.
Leaves and heads alike are speared
as on a shish-kabob.

What permeates the dense warm air
is skunk-like cabbage smell.
The bright green menace of the glen
is sent right down to hell.
