let them ring!

powers larger than ours

aircraft carriers outside my door
hurling insults through the air
if they were flowers and not assassins
we could all be history
Ancient Persia(Cyrus The Great
Like Ancient Mesopotamia/Older Egypt
still had Hittites,Wars,Slaves
Still defended ancient borders
Where is the war that mothers want?
It is to love their children well
to raise them in the light of peace
so they might grow as tall as weeds
Who are these tiny swords of war?
Damocles Atomic Bomb
This is no Super Bowl Half Time
Our Little Lives Might Just Flash Out
find us in the ashes of palaces,weeping
All our children.All our treasure
Lost,alone,with no one singing.
