The dawn’s slow rolling o’er the hill

The air is tense, silent and still

This scene is quiet, fast asleep

While we’ve this mission we need keep

The world about is tossed amiss

And chaos rules instead of bliss

When will this peace we’re searching for

Arrive at last at our front door ?

Far in the distance I can hear

The sound of all the passing trains

The wail that echoes loud and clear

Repeating its wistful refrains,

Across this world the trains hold court

With language we can’t comprehend

In climates cold or damage fraught

Or crises we don’t understand.

Oh sad the trail of distance brings

To circumstance beyond our reach

It is the sound of dying things

The skill of God will soon impeach !

There was a war long time ago

In places that we did not know

So many years now in our past

Proof of length that memories last.

Both young and old were forced to fight

Across the globe or out of sight

A war that simply parried on

Left none untouched here or beyond.

Now I am old but can recall

Those shadows cast upon my wall

With forgotten names that I’d known

Redemptions’ chance all but unknown.

Oh, someone should research this tale

Ere soon we shall completely fail !

SHEER INJUSTICE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/30

There was a man upon the road

Who seemed weighed down by heavy load

With spirits low, his shoulders sagged

And as he walked, his feet they dragged.

Another cause, another place

Perhaps another futile race

Tis sad believing all is lost

His faith and honor are the cost.

Oh Lord above, how can this be

The innocents now deemed guilty

Justice is lost, our nation cries

And all are left with compromise !

Once was a war, the worst we’d had

With consequence both bad and sad

Most of our men who truly tried

Did all they could before they died !

 

LINCOLN’S ADDRESS TO THE NATION WAS 11/19/1863

 

ARRIVE TOO LATE ( 2017 ) 2017/11/05

My tears are for the many men

Who never will go home again

Like those who pledged to give it all

In battle’s heat as they did fall.

Oh Lord in Heaven hear my plea

They gave their lives for me and Thee

Their sacrifice was far too great

With rewards that arrive too late !

 

THE FINAL ACT ( 2017 ) 2017/10/21

I find that life at best is strange

Though I’m not opting for a change

Nor am I saying that it’s bad

What choices are there to be had ?

It seems to me, we have no say

As lives evolve from day to day

Tis time that we accept the fact

It’s God who pens the final act !
