FREE CEE a challenge to change

                   A CHALLENGE TO CHANGE

On any foreign or domestic shore
From the waves unto the ocean’s floor
From Shangri-La to Chicago to China’s border
There is the disturbance of destruction and disruptive disorder

Amidst skies where stars secretly weep
From Little Rock to Little Bo Peep
From Arkansas to the covenant’s arc
From Rhode Island to rabid and ravenous dogs who bark

From fallow fields to furrowed brows
From Boston to where a beggar bows
From Kansas to a can-can coerced in France
From Richmond to the rewards retribution recants

Arrows no more, now bombastic bombs
Slaying beauty’s babies, daddies and their moms
White picket fences darkened by napalm
At a moment when calamity co-opted calm

Hearts playing a game of hide and seek
From Washington to the wretchedly weak
Life on this planet has become a challenge and chore
All due to damnable and despicable war
