War-More by tempeste
Tyburn poetry writing prompt entry

Leaders won't stop staging, waging war
Rampant egos gauging, raging more

Planting gardens, sowing, hoeing grounds.
Sunshine keeps all growing, mowing mounds.

Author Notes
30 minutes before the deadline , I noticed my 3rd and 4th words were wrong.

I edited and just put two new words but I realised they were weak.

My luck , my first reviewer Julie Helms kindly suggested two great alternatives.

Rampant egos gauging, raging more

Unchecked egos, aging , raging more.

Thanks Julie for your support!
