Tigers and the Sun

For many people
Hope was far gone
Children grew up alone
With their parents torn
From their lives and forced
To fight and to flee
The years of battle were long
When the warriors of the sun
Had taken the land
Of the people of the Dragon
Bitter rivalries turned violent
When the Dragon showed weakness
And the Land of the Sun was ready
To devour all of the Dragon's holdings
To halt the avalanch
Of endless defeat
The Flying Tiger joined the fray
And the Sun and Tiger
Joined in battle
Over the land of the Dragon
Giving up life for honor
For thrill
For gold
The Tigers fought
And in the end
Their efforts wrought
And fruitless
