The Outcome


Two men will argue and then two men will fight
Maybe from hatred or stubbornness they disagree
One then must be wrong and then the other right
Instead of a mediator they both need a referee,
Neither one seeks solitude they both seek a battle
Where one will survive and the other will be dead
They neither seek forgiveness each other just prattle
Saying things that should have never been said,
The men will fight and now one man is extinct
Whether he is right or wrong, he is not the victor
No more bickering for them as they are no longer linked
Fate and destiny to them is the ultimate predictor,
Though in the end God comforts the one who dies
And he will ultimately forgive the one who lives
Man doesn't seek absolution or the need to apologize
As man will always take away, what GOD gives.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
