no more

no more

not again
not another

rest
talk
negotiate

-or-

displace
destroy
demolish

culture
country
clan
family
child
heart

We watch passively as the images just roll across our screens.

We preach aggressively to justify our ends with our means.

We see everything and everyone as lesser than us.

We feel anguished and I feel ashamed for trying to cause a fuss - but it must be done.

It must be said.

Because "How long must we sing this song?" is about more than the song - its about life, and its about the dead.

Lay down your arms and speak with me instead:

no more
not again
not another...

it really can have more themes than the obvious one and i love poetry that does that.
i feel like this is being spoken and i like the way you name ending with the real things.

culture
country
clan
family
child
heart

How wonderfully profound and topical.

I get the feeling of frustration when I read this. I don't know why but I just feel frustration.
