by I.N.C. Aniebo
"Thanks to this insane war, even goats are no longer safe outside. What is the world coming to?"
War has broken out. Combatants have drawn the line in the sand to mark the side they are on. But it is unfortunate that this conflict is happening in one country, and the fighters are its own inhabitants. Locked in a battle for survival, countryman is fighting against countryman. And caught in the middle of this ill-fated and bloody clash are the ordinary citizens, who want only to go about living their lives tending to their livelihoods, spending time with their families and friends, and proceed through to the rest of their existence in quiet and peace.
