The pieces have been appointed.
A vigorous battle commences,
Two teams perspire, in tentatively.
Yet only one can receive the “glory”.

What urges these two teams to go all out against each other?
What splendor do they receive?
Is it just to prove their “superiority” over their opponent?

You’ve won!
Played the game at your best.
Earned the right to shatter their soul, and harm their existence.

So what!

All it does is show greed.
The true greed that lies within.
The greed for more.
The greed to win.

The pieces have been set yet again.
Will you prevail?
The need to win more consumes you!
It’s a hunger you cannot feed!
The true colors of humanity have been released yet again onto the unsuspecting.
You fight vigorously, its war!
A bitter laugh escapes as the enemies’ blood flows.
Feeling their torture sets you in bliss.
More, more, and more!
Consumed by the devil, you start the game.
You’re victory will come without doubt.
So What happens when you lose?

The author's comments:
i was in a cynical mood when i put this piece together. This piece symbolizes war and how some people resent each other for some ridicules reason.
