I turn off the news
It is all too much .
It smells of propaganda.
It is all too much
So I turn off the news.
I play music , classical
to calm my nerves.
War is not the answer
My friends, war is never the answer
especially now , especially
when our planet, our mother ,
Is trying so hard to right our destruction
war is not what we need.
The life giver, or mother to all things great and small .
Desperately needs peace so she can heal.
Think of the CHILDREN ,
why this fighting, for what ?
A dead world , is all you will rule.
War is not what we need.
So I pray for Sanity and Peace.
Peace for this world , this crazy world.
