A man

Standing staid and tall

Chaos around him

But he is never shaken

 

A world

Dead in an instant

Legions

Slayed in a second

 

A life’s work

Slips away in a flick

A masterpiece

Spoiled with one stroke of a brush

 

One false move

Topples the tower

As one decision

Nullifies a war

 

Skyscrapers crumble

And legends meet their demise

Lives crushed

While heroes die

 

But the man

Stands tall in the tumult

Unafraid of his fate

As he watches others meet theirs
