ABOUT PEACE

what’s this about peace?
i’ve heard it mentioned
not as much around here lately
but mentioned the same
some do roll their eyes
if you utter the word
to them it’s passe
they cough clear their throats even

they say it’s a pipe dream
a fool’s scheme
that does seem
impossible sure
for our ills there’s no cure

what’s this about peace?
don’t you ask me
cause no one agrees
no longer believes

don’t know where to start here
hold onto your part here
best protect your own heart
here’s your slice of the pie here

i won’t mention peace
cause i’ve seen you recoil
i won’t ask you
what’s this about peace?
