From The Comments: Nick

There the soldier stood in bronze repose for oh these many years. A memorial to brave men who died long ago, and have all but been forgotten.

Now it stands bravely in the wide boulevard, fighting a war it can never win, against a relentless enemy. Every day the bombs fall, without mercy, and with unmatched accuracy. The only warning to this poor soldier, the unmistakable sound:

"Coooo coooo," then "splat."

The bombs fall daily, until the patina of the bronze has turned white. Only one spot remains clean, where one pigeon builds a nest. The start of new life.

Wow, thanks.

Wait... I don't have to say thank you using 100 words do I? I mean, because that's sort of taking things a bit far, don't you think? I suppose I could keep rambling on just in case, and fill this up with a 100 word comment, but who has that sort of time? I mean, we all have a life, and a blog of our own.

You know what? It really doesn't matter. It's just nice to be recognized, and I won't waste your time by droning on and on, and instead I'll just say thank you again.
