Raven - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

Raven

What can we make of this war for our village

explain all this plunder and pillage

It's all too frightfully clear

Since Raven's been wavin'

war flags around here



So Raven stop wavin'

war flags around here


Raven

You want to blast us into outer space

First let's feed house and clothe the whole human race

'Cause, there's war over here

death and gore over there

We have not another world to share or spare

It's all so painfully clear

Since Raven's been wavin'


war flags around here

So Raven stop wavin'

war flags around here



Raven

Don't go engravin dull colors of your framin




of our red, or our white over blue

It shames us to see

these dirty tricks that you do

It's all too patently clear

Since Raven's been wavin'

war flags around here

So, Raven stop wavin'

war flags around here

Raven

It blows as blood flows on our heads and our toes

heaven knows we're shedding much more than a tear

Since, Raven's been wavin'

war flags around here.

So, Raven stop wavin'

war flags around here

Raven

who are you savin'

with points you've been shavin'

the lives you are stakin'


the ground you have shaken

No haven is safe from blind hatred we fear


Since Raven's been wavin'

war flags around here

So Raven stop wavin'

bloody war flags around here
