The New Civil War

On a cratered battlefield two armies meet,

Both think their cause is just, both views set in concrete

Keep their heads down as insults arc overhead

One fights for the blue, the other one red

The New Civil War is fought with words not guns

Each thinks they’re winning this war they’ve begun

Sad but true that neither will win this war,

This tit for tat meant for a victorious score,

For each views the world through a different lens

In a battle of wits from their poison pens

Yep, a symptom of a very divided country, I guess, Mike.

Very good, Mike. It describes US tribalism well. It was Trump's divisive tactics that caused the current situation. Lock him up!
