Dark Victory


       Missile’s docked, more weapons stock-piled
       ensuing conflict in our view
       We cross into some equinox, 
       to save our world or blow in two?

    Congrats on your win, Carrie! It seems everyone is watching the Middle East and now N. Korea once again, too. Peace may never be within our reach. Sad but true. Well-written. Blessings, Rhonda

    There couldn't be anything further from the truth than this chastushka, Carrie!...With all eyes on Israel and the U.S., the world lies in wait on a peaceful Iranian outcome. Sadly, there may not be a peaceful proposition. Congrats on this wonderful action-packed entry! Great title too! Andrea liked it as well. Love, Gwendolen

    Not sure the word [with] is STRESSED remember Andie said Trochie starts with a STRESSED word [it maybe fine] BUt I would be sure [MISsiles DOCKED and WEAPons trochaic] Carrie for some reason my spirits are very up this morning, perhaps because I had sight-singing class and some of it is actually starting to make sense. Dinner & a show tonight with my Sis for her birthday too! [No news yet on the test] Thanks for your flattering commnets! Light & Love

    if you need the syllable maybe you can stick [with] on the end of that line?
