Thoughts On County Road 17 - Poem by Vince Davis

The leafs have turned green,
Yet it all seems so mean
That when we’re all gone
The world will linger on
So why make our buildings crumble?
As we create such a rumble
With what we call bombs
That we dropp on other’s front lawns
And kill our own brothers
Which creates crying mothers.
But don’t blame U.S.
As if we don’t deserve trust
‘Cause peace and love starts with you and me
Our job now is to make the others see
That this pointless hate
Will never get them through the pearly gate
No matter what the name
The place we’re all trying to go is the same
So whether we fight and hate
Or end up getting scared straight
Either way, the world will linger on
For a long time after we’re gone
