A Tribal War

 A tribal War

In a small clearing it stood
dark and majestic against the sky
small silver like veins run riot
across its pitted scarred surface.
Glinting in the sun it sparkled
seeming near alive at times.

Two tribes considered it a god
and warred for the sole rights
to hold their ceremonies at its base.
indifferent to man kinds folly
it stood sentinel to only time,
all this it had seen before.

Two from opposing sides fell in love
and war once more flared up
their love being considered taboo.
No happy ending to this tale
alas they fought 'til all lay dead
And still the meteor rock stood tall.

    Interesting work..Tribes fight for all kinds of reasons none of which are worth dying for in the end..I see it that the creation was worshipped instead of the Creator..Sad that this still happens today..Thanks for the visit to my page..Sara

    It's allegorical ....we try to monopolize God and die in belligerence like these tribal warriors.God is one and stand tall. An awesome poem Shadow.God bless.Love>rajat
