Andrew...that is basically what I had in mind...but this could be set in any time including the present. Isn't all war brother against brother since we are all brothers of sorts??
Balladeer...thank you and in answer to your question...poetry is fun yes, but even more importantly poetry is life, depth, and realization...it is through our verses that we speak and if we are so fortunate to get our message across, we have done well by ourselves and by others.
