Worse War of All!

byUncle Pervey©

The absolute worse war our country was in,
Was the strife between the North and the South.
Some crazies in the South wanted to secede,
And "High Ideals" were spouted from their mouths!

The Yankee soldiers had their hard tack pork and beans,
And of course they had lots of coffee too.
While the Rebs had their sow-belly grits and greens,
And their coffee was a "Chicory" brew.

The "Yanks" backed by twenty-nine states were supplied,
With all that they needed for each battle.
More than just a few Rebs went hungry and cried,
And what beef they got was Texas cattle!

The "Southern States" flew thirteen stars for "Honor,"
And the "North" fought for "Unification."
"Slavery" wasn't the real reason for war,
But to halt the Southerner's "Secession!"

There were four hard "long" years of "Tribulation,"
The Southern people fought with all they had.
The South just couldn't "win" without "Industry,"
And it cost the South many a "good" lad!

The damage to the Southland was "Horrific,"
And to make matters worse Lincoln was shot.
The South "Paid" for Lincoln's "Assasination,"
With the "Invading Carpet-Bagging Rot!"

This will "Always" be our country's "Worse" conflict,
When Father fought Son and Brother Brother!
We should thank our God that we're still "united,"
And "Pray" that there'll "Never" be "Another!!"
