Peace II

Written by: Sue Mason

The silence is deafening,
no one is talking
as the count is posted
on the nightly news.
Far more than 9-11 are the
obscene figures 
for Arab lads from across the world
slain at our hand.
This is insanity,
this is a travesty
and no one speaks.
This is not war,
this is revenge,
a slaughter, murder.
We must walk tall
we must be proud enough
to come home and
we will all face
whatever anyone throws at us.
We will face it here.  
We are brave and strong and
we've thrown enough bombs
at their widows!!
Stop!  Stop!
Peace Now!
