23. Internecine - (adj.) destructive to both sides of a conflict

The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow

The song "So Says I" is about how humanity just can't help but get into internecine conflicts... over and over again.

23. Internecine - (adj.) destructive to both sides of a conflict

Bob Dylan - Masters of War - from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

One way to look at Day 23's word is the on-the-nose way - that war causes destruction on both sides involved.
But another way I thought of this word and its definition was while I was thinking about this particular song. The fact that war, and those who engage in the planning of it, creates a situation where someone wishes death on, or would celebrate the death of, another person. That's an unfortunate and harsh by-product of this, and is certainly destructive to all parties.

And I hope that you die
And your death will come soon
I'll follow your casket
By the pale afternoon
And I'll watch while you're lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I'll stand over your grave
'Til I'm sure that you're dead

Buddy Rich - The Lost Tapes

Not too many people have had more influence in drumming than Buddy Rich...and it's well documented that he was a very authoritative figure in running his bands.
