in response to Sept 12 show, I wrote the following: Peace like a river . . .
Peace sailed out on songs.When peace was a river and truth was on our side. After a sea change, the wars no longer political Now, more like priests and rabbis and imams caught in a brawl.
Every side says they got it right.Each side says everything will be alright.Just sail on the night and fight Just stay and fight.
Dressed, gathered in freedom’s gowns It has never been the same since.When peace like a river flowed from every ship’s sail.And each side said they got it right.
Pirates are no threat to crosses, David’s stars, and burqas.Each side says they got it right.Everybody says it will be alright.
That acrid, metal taste in the back of the throat, Where bile and blood and forced air combine toDrown out the sounds and sink the feeling.
Everybody says it will be alright.It has never been the same since,When peace like a river flowed And each side got it right.
