The Epic War Between Friends - Poem by Michael Fischer

Another quarrel, but no clear cut victor,
as a stalemate ensues in the epic war.
It’s friend vs. friend,
without an end;
This has gone day in and day out.

Egotism subjects their minds
and pride prevents them from compromise.
No one’s giving in,
they both want to win;
This has gone day in and day out.

Stockades are built, allies are made,
and arcana are kept from one another.
Victims choose sides
‘cause they’re told lies;
This has gone day in and day out.

    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. I like your perception, seeing those drawn into the argument as 'victims'... quite right too.. Rgds., ..frank. (Report) Reply
