THE LION AND THE LAMB

By Venerando Rapisarda, Army

Writing Type: Poem

The lamb and the lion,
The pen and the sword,
The innocent and their slaughter.
History is but victory in defeat.
The child from the womb,
The conflict is monumental,
Yet the consequences remain the smne.
Reality yields to obscurity,
The master becomes the slave.
Nature will dash with humanity,
Justice will suffer the etiects.
Vice will become reality,
Virtue will be just a word.
The cycle will be complete
And only the joke will remain.
How funnv is the truth?
Wisdom. is the child!
Why are we here?
And laughing the lion
Will sleep with the lamb!
