The One-Sided Battle

by: Negasi

The archers stand ready

Their weapons drawn

While the front men

Hide behind their shields and yawn

Three times the size

Does one army have

The winner of this fight

Doesn't win using might

The smaller army strikes

With quick attacks

The large army laughs

And starts to relax

But the disadvantage

Isn't on the smaller side

No, it's on the other

The disadvantage is pride

The small army is winning

The large one is surprised

They should have retreated

After staring defeat in the eyes

The larger army's dignity

Lost them the war

This tale will be
