I’d Rather Be Dervish


I declare it is war
Unlike what Saddam did
Following the Reagan
It’s clear
It is war
US planes, Lithuania, in Poland
Means a lot
“It is war with Russia”

I am ready
Qashqayee in Shiraz
In mountains I saw wells
Carved deep in solid rock
And the caves
Machetes
And cross
It was war

US jets mean one thing
“It is war”
Washington is blind
As are all the allies
And Putin
Out of mind
What are all these borders?
Just for war...

I’d rather be Dervish
A Sufi
A Hippy
A boomer
Out of mind
Poor and hard
Without word

I’m not part
In this war
Washington’s, Kremlin’s

    Amen to that! ! ! ! ! My Brother/Sister?
    I am here in Amerika and the leaders do not follow the
    will of the people! The people want peace, love and freedom!
    As do I!
    I love you!
