Unfair Fights

Three days and three nights
Old man fiercely fights;
Marlin cowardly flights
three days and three nights,
dragging the old man’s boat.

“Will power, perseverance
sets him win the game.”
Scavengers run him after,
devour that giant catch
and send to the shore
only that skeleton to show.

“Old man fights but lose
The terribly unfair fight.
Many against one;
Unfair! it’s not fair.”

How many lost their life
in defence of their rights
even in Old man’s fight?
