Civil War

Thus the men of Israel were subdued at that time, and the men of Judah prevailed, because they relied on the LORD, the God of their fathers.
2 Chronicles 13:18

Take up sides
know you are right
fight the fight

Armies divided
as leaders collided
the battle decided

Much blood was shed
armies wounded and bled
victors exulted -- losers fled

The armies were brothers
but they saw them as "others"
no conscience to bother

So swords were raised
and in battle's thick haze
death was met unfazed

The outcome was done
as victory was won
at the setting of the sun

And in the end
what victor spent
equalled not what victor gets
