The War rages on hidden from view,
As the casualties mount,
Too many to count;
The cost of living no one foreknew.
One side: The Rational Army.
The other: The Ardent Brigade,…
Which plans out each raid,
To get to the heart of it you see.
Every squadron is resolute,
In fighting for their cause,
And without pause,
They’d kill or die to win the dispute.
The Rational Army’s clever;
Yet it is blind to hope,
And it cannot cope,
With the weight of every endeavor.
The Ardent Brigade’s positive,
The the War will soon end,
So they will defend,
Farfetched hopes and pipe-dreams while they live.
The War rages on between two sides.
Neither side will e’er yield.
They feel they must wield,
The right to make choices for both sides.
They don’t understand each other,
They surely never will.
The War’s a standstill.
One rules for a time, then the other.
Each soldier bravely plays their part.
The differences so vast,
Make it sure to last:
The War between the head and the heart.
