Last Story Standing

All the heroes yours,
All the villains theirs,
Don’t call your heroes
Villains, their villains
Heroes or victims.

Tell us, is it just
Us, or are your tales
Becoming ever
More aggressive, more
Fiercely contested?

Histories are hoards
Stored and defended.
If you hold the fort,
Your gold stays true gold,
If sacked, it’s worthless,

Paper currency
The wind blows away.
Weaponry, really,
All of it, not hoards
Of gold—armories.

But you thought tales fought
For you, for your teams.
No, your histories
Fight each other for
Glory. You’re powder.
