Treasure Island

War Will Be A Memory Of The Past

The story has been told down through the ages of how men nailed the son of God to a wooden cross
And still we hear of crimes against humanity and one person's loss of rights is everybody's loss
And still we have men going to war for God and Wealth and Land and Glory though their God hardly with them would agree
And many far too many go unpunished for awful crimes against humanity.

Humankind has come a long way in technology but in other ways we've not come far at all
And from history we have not learned the lessons though history has many lessons to recall
Will the future generations know an Earthly Eden and in decades from now will young men in their prime
Will not have to go to war for to prove their manhood and enjoy life in a more peaceful clime?

In decades from now when I'm not here to witness there will be peace amongst the human race
And for the war men and the awful despots in a peaceful World there will not be a place
And the flower of peace she will be blooming lovely and war will be a memory of the past
And the lessons of past mistakes will have been heeded and
beautiful peace will reign supreme at last.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
