Empty Existence

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought...

-

Nor against whom -

Robots, computers, technology?

Will the viruses, fungi and bacteria

Infect the bodies of virtual men

Who will drop their weapons, cry in pain...

-

Muted cannons, silent guns

Spread out across the empty field

On the shiny, black platform -

The future dependent on no more

Than the next combination.

-

No more fallen bodies

Found on the battlefields.

Simply...fading away

Into eternity - as nothing more

Than a figment of our imagination.

-

Looming on the edge

So close, yet so far,

World War Three;

The Unknown world;

The digital realm awaits...

-

But World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.


A/N: This was done for school, with a friend of mine (known as Faerie-Kitsu on DeviantART). Basically, it had to relate to war, and wasn't allowed (unfortunately) to rhyme. It's not really the highest possible standard, I/we know, but...Anyway, do leave a review!

Since we wanted to stand out (& look weird), we decided to do it on a more futuristic theme. Of course, that means we can't leave out our credits to Albert Einstein for his cool quote :D

Hope you enjoyed it, now review!
