Quinn’s Winning Poem:

War.
War never changes.

I wake up to smell the fresh air.
But all I smell is War.

I read the paper
and all I see is War.

I walk my dog around the block
and all I hear is War.

I go to work
and all I feel is War.

I go to Bed.
I dream,
and I dream about War.

Then I wake up.
And repeat.
Over and over and over.

I pray for it to stop.
But it never ends.
All I know is War.
War never changes.
