World at Peace

A world feels

Finally at peace.

No longer in turmoil,

As all the wars cease.


A fresh breeze blows

Carrying no scent of despair.

Nothing can be heard

Except the birds in the air.


Fires burn out,

Soldiers put their guns down.

The people rejoice,

Jubilation across town.

The evil dictator

Finally lost his crown,

His reign of terror ended,

The ground going from black to brown.


But he lays waiting,

Ready to end this peace

And to make the death toll

Steadily increase.

Wanting to plunge the world

Into turmoil once more,

As he takes back his crown

And settles the score.
