Rouketopolemous

A creative writing piece

Rouketopolemous, “Rocket War,” is celebrated the day before Easter Sunday in Greece. It’s an event that unites Greece.

Rockets collide, but I don’t care
I find love to be unfair.
The people in Greece-
They sip and they feast
As they wait for me- to let the rockets release.
Please God get me out of this havoc
The shrapnel cuts my skin to the bone.
I am absolutely lost
This rockets off course
And she is gone to never remorse.
Everyone’s rocket flies symmetrically
You sit there and watch my rocket
Fly alone in the sky-
The people in Greece- they kiss all night.
But I stand alone,
Watching their rockets collide.
