I wanna run away from

The thought that people are

Dying so that I can be

A free American 

          ***** 

I watched ken burns’ the war

And I got goose bumps and

For moments I really believed

But believed in what          

          ***** 

That bullets and bombs and

Mortars and tanks and

Blood and guts spilled

In the name of freedom

Will result in peace

          *****

Peace will not exist as

Long as humans seek

Greed and power and wealth          

          *****  

That’s how it is, unfortunately

And so I take solace in the

Bending tree at dusk just

Before the final light fades
