The boy walks slowly along the dusty road, pushing the large dolly ahead of him.  The small, hard wheels crunch along the gravel, spitting out dirt and chunks of rock behind them.  The sun beats down, scorching the land, causing the boy to stop, pull out a scarf, and wipe his forehead.

The Bout of the Century

The two combatants slowly circled, One named Ogre, one named Orc. All around the land fairly whirled, And they swung their weapons with incredible torque. Ogre swung, caused Orc to dodge, And Ogre’s club went whistling by. Then Ogre’s club in a tree did lodge When an arrow went flying by.
