Boots splash alongside water

Gunfire echoes through the winds

Souls drift away here and there

But the chaos never ends.

When will it end?
The troops will wonder

Will it end?
The troops will ponder.

No one dares to stop firing

Or bashing. Or killing.

Because they know

The other side won't stop the blunder.

The ensuing chaos unfolds

It's a pity, really, a pity.

Because everyone knows

No one really wants to fight.
