War Drums


I want to guide us to peace. 

It's where resolutions meet. 

But you sound the war drums

every time we meet. 

So I write poems negotiating

my terms of peace. 

All you know is the sound of

war drums.

No ones taught you the words

of peace.

I am sorry I didn't teach them to


I just sounded my war drums.  

Do you ever get sick of the sound? 

Do you ever just want to hear another


Maybe a sweet lullaby drifting you 

to a peaceful sleep?
