Writing Battlefields! - Poem by Clarence Prince

When on writing battlefields
Where words run for shield
When writers look for speed
Will one writes a good read?
Perhaps, one could indeed!
If there is a fair need

On writing battlefields
On foot or on wheels
Over lands or over seas
On your own do something?
Write something to read
On writing battlefields

If your mind is like mine
If you like passing time
If you have nothing to hide
If you should need a guide
On writing battlefields
Fight on the winning side

Wait until the time's right
When the day gives its light
With using your insight
Writing will be a delight
On writing battlefields
Fight on the winning side.

    On Writing Battlefields
    Write something for others to read,
    Yes, let the pen does the fighting,
    it won't hurt anyone, but it may help someone.
    Keep on writing and sharing your work.

    You're so right!
    At least there's a battle field where you can fight and win bloodless
    battles, without sacrificing lives.
    Very nicely structured and interesting poem.
