THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR

From Sumter to lee's
surrender,
The hostilities
between,
The fired shots,
The wasted lives.
Questions unsettled
from nation’s
Inception tried,
The issues such as
key
The slavery
question,
North and south
divided,
Over them contended.
For four years
'proximate,
The fallen and the
slain,
Lying spread-eagled
or prostrate,
After the smoke and
fire,
The invisible
element cleared.
One half to arms
deemed humane,
The second half by
profit blinded,
A profit from toil,
Off the backs of
them from
Across the sea,
They brought to the
land of the free,
When freedom was
deemed for
Only those up the
tree,
The morally-blind's
human tree.
The questions which
war forged,
The same did war not
settle outright!
How! Many men were
slain.
How! Many men fell.
And as blood grass
blades covered -
Dust grains stained,
So deeds the pages
of history
Marked,
And these indelible
marks
Have left upon the
sands of
Time.
