Contagious (an acrostic poem)

Coughing unleashed the invading fleet into open space

Outbound they honed in on their target

Nearing insertion they began to establish a beachhead

The defenders began to rally, but initially their attempts were repulsed

As the invaders worked their way deeper into enemy territory

Gains came at a cost as the defenders began to rally

Increasing loses piled up as the invaders lost ground

Orders to retreat passed thorough the remaining invaders

Under extreme pressure the invaders began their exit strategy

Soon a another cough sent the survivors onto another battle

The End (an acrostic poem)

Till the fat lady sings they say

Hero could hear her warming up now

Even as he pulled his sword out of its sheath

 

Everything had gone to hell so quickly

Now Hero screamed as he charged into battle

Death would pay a price to have his soul today

Reason (an acrostic poem)

Rational ideas set up bulwarks and walls, defending what it considers truth

Emotions launch themselves at those fortifications, trying to lay them low

As the battle wages on, the field gets more and more muddied

Soon the lines are blurred, and what was considered truth becomes lost in the struggle

Obscuring what was the purpose of the original struggle

Negating any hope that cooler minds will prevail
