This wasn't what I thought I was going to write.

It was wherever my mind wanted to take me. 

A stark reminder if we forget to love just hate


As time immemorial, 

What will we remember.

The one that did wrote,

That silly old goat.


Or will we remember ,

The lies the hate our fears,

Our children's eyes,

Filling with tears.

Or the warmongers long gone,

That the world That did nothing,

As our kind just looked on


Will someone out there, 

Please listen to our plight.


Our Lord's prayer;

Citizen's of this earth.

Burning Bright,

Will we still have,

An ozone layer tonight.


Embers reaching up

So high, who told you

It was,

Our time to die.


Or did you know,

What was going to happen,

And wrongly thought.

We wouldn't be caught,



So people of our earth,

Ignoring wars, They

Didn't want to fight. 

Tell us please,

Will we finally destroy

Ourselves tonight.

Amen to that!.
