Little People’s War

                         LITTLE PEOPLE’S WAR –Joanne Rand 1/7/16

TALE GOES ON FOREVER

OF A LITTLE PEOPLE’S WAR.

DO YOU THINK ITS HUMAN NATURE

OR WHAT THEY’RE FIGHTING FOR?

 

AS THE CENTURIES ROLL FORWARD

THE BATTLE PRESSES ON

AND IT’S BEEN THIS WAY FOREVER

SINCE GENGIS KHAN

 

DO YOU THINK IT’S HUMAN NATURE?

DO YOU THINK WE’LL EVER FIND

PEACE            OF        MIND?

PEACE            OF        MIND?

***

LEGEND GOES THERE IS A LIGHTHOUSE

STANDING BRAVELY ON A HILL

INSIDE AN ANCIENT STONE CIRCLE

OF PREHISTORIC SKILL.

 

RUMOR HAS IT ALL WHO SEEK THIS PLACE

ALREADY HOLD THE KEY

TO CLIMB INSIDE THE SPIRAL

AND LIGHT THE LAMP OF PEACE.

 

DO YOU THINK IT’S HUMAN NATURE

DO YOU THINK WE’LL EVER FIND

PEACE OF MIND?

PEACE OF MIND?

***

THE LIGHT OF PEACE HAS BEEN SHINING –

FOR EONS, IT SEEMS

DO YOU THINK WE’LL EVER FIND IT

IN THIS SPIDERWEB OF DREAMS?

 

WHEN THE WHITES OF OUR EYES

MEET THE WHITES OF THEIRS

CAN THERE BE UNDERSTANDING

IN THIS COMEDY OF ERRORS?

***

CAN THE LIGHTHOUSE SHINE FOREVER

WHILE WE BOMB OUR WORLD TO HELL

CAN THERE BE A FUTURE

ONLY FUTURE CAN TELL

 

THE LIGHT OF PEACE WILL BE SHINING

FOR EONS IT SEEMS

SOMEWHERE DEEP INSIDE US

SOMEWHERE IN OUR DREAMS

 

CAN THE WORLD OUTLIVE THIS TALE

OF A LITTLE PEOPLE’S WAR

OR IS IT HUMAN NATURE

CAN WE BE MORE?

 

WHEN THE WHITES OF OUR EYES

MEET THE WHITE OF GOD

WE WILL OUTSHINE THIS HUMAN FLOOD.

 

DO YOU THINK IT’S HUMAN NATURE

DO YOU THINK WE’LL EVER FIND

PEACE       OF              MIND

PEACE            OF        MIND?

PEACE            OF        MIND?
