When Two Elephants Fight

The square is quiet and still
but this calm is not of peace
the birds above no longer sing
and rats below have stopped to squeal.
This is what comes to be when two elephants fight
the ground quakes with trembling rumbles
and the youths sit idly by.
All we can do is wait and watch as the fight for our fate ensues,
a battle for our future that we ourselves cannot fight.
