God Lord! Merle Haggard is a hit man!

Vad sägs om lite upplyftande musik. Haggard slår an en ton:

Suddenly it’s over, the war is fin’lly done.
Soldiers in the desert sand, still clingin’ to a gun.
No-one is the winner an’ everyone must lose.
Suddenly the war is over: that’s the news.

  1. HELENA – MY HUMBLE EFFORT AT WRITING AN ANTI-WAR POEM…

    WAR

    If glory be in war;
    Call to fighting cause.
    Sounding trumpet, bugle blare;
    Forward body, nation’s duty, spirited care.
    Arms and regiments, bodies dead with empty stares.

    Held with spellbound stare;
    Pausing, thinking, wondering, looking, hoping.
    Regal dress, early morn;
    Firm bodies lined in splendid form.
    On fields with buttons ready – press!

    Leaders, heroes, wealthy dealers;
    Spurring, urging, telling, convincing – fight!
    Just cause at dawn;
    Belief, action, halt, retreat.
    Life has lost its normal beat.

    Horror at sights in view;
    Crying, wailing, maiming, slaughter, death!
    History speaks, sad regrets.
    History speaks sad regrets.
    Victor, vanquished, tears of fear, hearts upset.

    Count the dead, write strategies won;
    Planning, removing, rebuilding, stop killing!
    Another wrong, and convolute;
    Duty, action, questions fall.
    Human beings dead, lies fed – salute!

    Courtenay: Thanks! There is a poet in every man so it seems.

    When it comes to taxes and so forth I will answer soon. I must think a little while first. 😛
