Toe to Toe

They stand toe to toe
Neither will give up their ground
A battle for fools
For they both possess great strength
One will be destroyed today
The winner receives no prize
The blood screams out from his hands
For him there's no sleep
Glassy eyes peer from the dark
Brother dead on ground



Trying out Harry Horsman's toe to toe tanka.

    A brother on brother fight to the death? What a gruesome topic... I wonder what differences could have lead up to this. The outcome of such arguments leads only to deep regret and destruction apparently. I will try my best to heed your advice... and instead think of ways that makes two people the same.

    It all started with Cain and able and the spilled blood cried to God from the ground.
