And from the ranks of both armies –
the same voice the same refrain:
‘He who is not with us is against us.
You must take sides. Justice is ours.’
And I stand alone in the midst of them,
Amidst the roar of fire and smoke,
And pray with all my strength for those
who fight on this side , and on that side.
