The Great Leaf Wars
larrylark

When the Rooties
 1
fought the Budski’s in ‘35
 2
during “The Great Leaf War”,
 3
they devised a papier mache
 4
light as air sycamore shaped bomb
 5
which could be seen coming down
 6
among the pine needle defences
 7
showering the sky for miles and miles.
 8
It twirled slowly to earth,
 9
sending the populace into such a spin,
 10
that they lay down and gave themselves in.

How fun! I love the title and the body.  It's a little confusing in the end what it all means but that doesn't matter for a piece like this. Well done!
