My friend attacks my friend!
Oh Battle picturesque!
Then I turn Soldier too,
And he turns Satirist!
How martial is this place!
Had I a mighty gun
I think I’d shoot the human race
And then to glory run!

    How very tragic the civil war that Dickenson is so disturbed that she fervently speaks out her disgust and torrid anger ” i would shoot the human race”
    I am more stoic and in this short poem ask

    are friends of my friends
    necessarily friends of my own
    can I accept one
    and the other disown

    Shimon Weinroth
