A Season of Guns and Blood


It's a season of guns and blood
Cruelty hides under white hoods
Oh some praying will be wise
To stir our faith and slow demise
But faith dries like fire wood
It's a season of guns and blood

We once walked paradise road
Memory eases not the load
Our sunken hearts now lost for words
It's a season of guns and blood

Justice here once stood
Now violence rises like a flood
A hope lays back and takes a nod
While we sit by and chew our cuds
And wobble through our daily mud
It's a season of guns and blood

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
