Electronic warfare

The two language-armored warriors lob broadsides

down invisible wires to unknown corners of a divided nation


 

Opposite in thought and deed, each wants to win the day,

Armed beliefs clash electronically on this typing field


 

Silent thunder rolls, silent words scream, tempered words clash

in an epic battle of wills, a titanic struggle of opposing ideals


 

Blood stains the monitor, each sees red, sees the other as blind

and tries to make their point of view visible to the other


 

in this epic, fruitless, ultimately frustrating war to end all wars
