I often wondered which of us would
Ultimately outlast the other
In this snarling war of words where
Reason is a casualty.
Grappling like jungle beasts who know
The tactics of our foe
And seek to slash with razor teeth
All semblance of reality.
Can’t remember who was first,
Don’t recall the reason why,
Only know that it’s been going on
Far longer than it should.
Pass the blame from left to right
To left again, and on it goes.
Don’t know how to stop it
If we should, if we could.
No way to resolve the difference.
No hope to revive.
One moves on and one is left
Struggling to survive.
