Rat a tat tat
The last time
we found
ourselves in this place
was yesterday
and the yesterday
before that
Rat a tat tat

Counting backwards
we arrive at three
and the yesterday's before
the yesterday's of
a war-filled history

Peace has no history
Some would argue
That we've had Peace-time
But I would counter
That was merely a lull
A break from the battle
But not from death's rattle

Just a breath
A breath made of coldness
Buried beneath machines
Of mass destruction

A weaponized instruction
An evil held up
by the deep roots
of money

Rat a tat tat
The last time
we found
ourselves in this place
was yesterday
and the yesterday
before that
Rat a tat tat

The last time
In war's mind
Feels the same
As the last

Our lull toward love
Is just a break
A break from Godless war

We don't have time
No time for crying
As the spirit's dying
From murderous destruction

War's the last
Thing God wants
Despite the stories

Children, Mothers
And Fathers shattered
Torn from Love's arms
Buried underground
To no more laughter's sound

And don't you dare tell me
The others don't matter
Damn Warmonger
I'd say go to hell
But with your foul greed
We're already there

I feel them all
You cruel jackals
I hold them
As they scream
As they bleed
As they breathe
And give themselves over
To death's miserable scratch

Rat a tat tat
The last time
we found
ourselves in this place
was yesterday
and the yesterday
before that
Rat a tat tat
Rat a tat tat
Rat a tat tat

RED SOUND Head-Line Verse

Red's the sound of murder
Blue's the sound of mourning
Yellow, pinstriped cowardice
Tapping toes, a distraction
Rage, the news attraction
Pure gold, rating's satisfaction The sound of murder is red
Blue's next ~ HATE CRIME REPORTS SURGE IN BRITAIN... "Hate is caused by Fear
Fear is caused by Hate
They feed off one another
End both, end all Wars.
Cease both, Heaven arises." Hate, are you Fear's second cousin? (First cousin.) Are you two close? (BFF's!) ~ ISIS CLAIMS 40 LIVES AT SHIITE SHRINE...
How many more are to be lifted before We rise up? (We need rise up just to get a headcount of those murdered.) It would be far too painful, sorrow comes from the actions of the murderer, the victims draw upon our grief...


The rising began and begins from deep within our being, then it brings the collective to an agreement; freedom is free. We are to follow its example and free ourselves from being a slave to “things”. To truly be free, We must agree that freedom is truly for the whole of humankind, for if one is enslaved, so shall We all be…

Bangladesh Attack Suggests Shift by ISIS as It Loses Territory

The shift is most felt after there are no other alternatives but to believe in something beyond doubt that you cannot possibly know in the unfolding of truth. Truth's unknown until it unfolds.

Don't detonate rage,
set off Love,
assemble Peace,
let War fall away,
erase it of its monstrous use.
