Civil War in Oklahoma


There have always been wars
There has always been unrest
Sometimes it’s as simple as
Folks wanting to be the best

War is always horrendous
But especially when it involves
So many innocent people
Very difficult to be resolved

So much pain and suffering
Affects much of the population
Especially when a war is fought
With so little deliberation

That’s the way it was in Oklahoma
Where many wars were fought
The Indians suffered terribly
Many killed without a thought

But everyone has to decide
What it is that’s worth fighting for
The worse thing for a country
Is to have a Civil War!

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
