The War - Poem by Naveed Akram

It roams far away where there is no one but the trolls,
There is much inconvenience in the land of trolls.

We are tired of the telling of tales by the people against them,
Then our commands are not obeyed and they are not with them.

Who? The Trolls. They are not with the Trolls, who are hard.
They, the Orcs, are not with them, fighting instead who are hard.

The ogres are grotesque compared to the Trolls,
And the orcs are no match in strength to the Trolls

Or the Ogres, for they are in combat with each other -
They, the ogres and trolls and orcs fight each other

Until one of them has defeated and conquered-
Triumphant Trolls.
