Tug and Pull

Written by: Asheka Collins

Tug and pull
Spit and spat.

The battle lines 
Have been drawn.
This war will be over.
Before the next dawn.

“Stop!”, She shrieks
Loud and eerie
Her eyes full of tears
And very bleary.

How can I choose a side.
 How can I fight in a war,
I did not start.

Each side
A worthy cause.
The narration of each story.
Make you swing from side to side.

Stop! This battle can’t be won.
I declare each side wins.
All be it by half.
