Peace Song

 
(For Malini & Anjana)

Let us sing
love songs
whilst they
go make war

we may get
nowhere
but will they
get far?

this world
is for lovers
what else
is there
?

and though
doom still
close hovers
we shall not beware
 
*
 
And whilst missiles
will fly
and innocents still
die

we shall
be unmoved
we will not
give cry

perchance as
they kill
a few may
cavil?

cross over
and join
their orders
defy

though we may
all sink
in less than
a blink

history
won’t say
that no one
did try

 
*
 
So let us sing
love songs
whilst they
go make war

for we’re not
warriors
but lovers
by far
