Friends in Power

When friends
Are given power
Over us
The bonds
That we had
Bonds that lasted
Throughout the years
Ones that survived
And triumphed
Against any odds
Are so very easily
Broken

Instead of ‘We’
Everything becomes
‘Them and Us’
Wars are raged
Histories
Forgotten

No more friendship
No more kinship
Just a widening chasm
Between their choices
And your insubordination

In the end
It’s loser leaves town

And they’ll never lose
