A RAT A TAT

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
I PRAY, NO MORE

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

WAKE UP
War's the last
Thing God wants
Despite the stories

Children, Mothers
And…
