Types of Conflict #Poems Set 2: Vs Nature and Vs Technology

Here’s set 2 of the ‘Conflict’ poems.  Hope people are enjoying these.  They’re not as easy to do as I expected.

Person Vs. Nature

Hurricanes shredding towns
Earthquakes and tidal waves
Decimating landscapes
Alien worlds
That greet earthlings with violent death
A hero’s spirit is tested
As they endure the wrath of nature
Tales that show how one survives
And clings to hope
In a land that wants us dead

Person Vs. Technology

The push for progress
That has fueled mankind
Makes a lethal turn
Threatening the world
It was supposed to improve
Either in the open
Or with most unaware
Robots marching on cities
Some all steel and others partial flesh
Cures transforming into plagues
Unleashing a global threat
Some glitches are by design
While others are bad luck
The warnings are all the same
How far can man push into the realm of creation?

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
