The Monument

Stone upon stone
Heaped to the stars
Not knowing how
Or even why the heap was made
I asked a passerby
The meaning of the stones
A war had been fought here
A final battle waged in blood
A test between champions
Too tired of the bloodshed
And deciding to end it
With one meaningful climax
Whereby the victor
Would lord over the other
Creating a peace that would last
So long as the stones stood
The test of time
So long in its duration
That the battle's legend grew
And the reason for war
Was long forgotten
Until one day I searched for the answer
An epic journey through history
In the annals of the sacred libraries
And finally found record
Of one fierce titanic clash
Between two renown men of valor
Fighting for pride and honour
A contest of wills
Commonly known today
As Rock, Paper, Scissors
