    The War of the Stars
    Author: smuggler_vola (known as Epic Duck on
    Characters: None
    Summary: A free-verse type poem looking at the conflicts of the Star Wars saga, comparing them to the conflicts of our present-day world.
    Notes: I know the health care and various things differ greatly from how they are in our world, our galaxy, but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm not talking about physical objects, technology is grouped into that category. I apologize if that sounded rude, but I wanted to clarify. :)

    The War of the Stars
    Many lives were lost
    There never really was peace
    No matter how hard they fought
    There would always be conflict
    There would always be war
    Whether blood was shed
    Or minds were lost to the dark
    Whether it was a feud between families
    Or a galaxy-wide dispute
    People just couldn't get along
    Compared to our world today,
    We're really not that different
    We bicker and fight
    Argue and act in ways we should not
    Greed and selfishness
    Most are familiar with these emotions
    Set aside the advanced and complex technology
    Open your eyes
    Dig down deep
    What do you see?
    What is left?
    'Tis a shame we do not learn
    'Tis a shame we don't open our eyes
    Open our eyes and see
    We need each other
    We need peace
    But it is too much to ask for
    Not possible to achieve
    'Tis a shame
