The Battle by disneyluver

We watch as they come across the field

Only one of us shall win

While the others will be crushed beneath the winner's heels.

We ourselves have won many of the minor scuffles

But lost a few

Millions would love to be in our shoes.

It's Darwin's Natural Selection but on a much larger scale

Some armies will outlast others

While others are destined to fail.

We attack them with our mighty swords

For only one shall be taking home the coveted Best Picture award.

Author's notes: I don't know how i came up with this poem. I showed it to my then english teacher Mr. V and he copied all but the last two lines into everyone's journal and told them to guess what it was about. Some people really thought it was about a war!
