Predators in Wars

A walkway to a new world
An old railroad crossing spans over a river of time
Eroded river banks spill over from
The rush of muddy spring rains
Low water damn
Water arising
Standing guard upon village walls
And blocks of concrete piers
Among moats of stacked circles
A man-made castle upon mountain ledges~
Gander stands on high
Keeping watch
Protecting his kingdom
Overlooking the flows below
Goose lays upon her throne
Warming & nestling her
Hidden brood
Raising the ducklings
Heirs to the throne
Homes built on ledges
Among the torrents of rapids
Predators in wars for territory
I question young raised
Along side such threats
Survival of the fittest ~
But for the casualties of war
Mighty life
Still claims
The spoils of war . . .
