The Battle Between Whont and Knead

by Matt Sise

General Whont is a short, ugly demon of a man.
General Knead is long and lean in his gorgeous tan.
They did battle by the statue of the Grand Dame.
Whont broke off an arm, and Knead did the same.
Oh, what a terrible thing I've started.

It was the statue they fought with; the statue they fought for -
He who won the statue won the fight, the battle and the war.
The beauty of the Grand Dame gave eternal life,
But the victor had to go through internal strife.
Knead hit high, and Whont struck low.
Whont swung again, and Knead returned the blow.
Oh, what a terrible thing I've started.

They broke off more, because it gave power to win the fight.
Knead was fighting because he loved the Dame with all his might;
Whont was trying to gain power and out of lust.
They fought until the statue was dust.
Oh, what a terrible thing I've started.

They keep fighting, though they don't know what for.
They've been fighting so long, no one cares anymore.
Oh, what a terrible thing I've started.
