Randy McClave (Ashland, Kentucky)
Tonight; let there be peace
Let all killings and violence end
All hate, just let it cease
Instead of a foe, let's be a friend.
Let all guns and bombs fall silent
Let the embers of all hate burn out
To one and another let’s not be violent
Let hatred, be our last bout.
Let all greed die and turn cold
Allow prosperity and care to thrive
Compassion and charity let us behold
Let us not, only survive.
Tonight; let there be a truce
Let us together end all hostilities
Let's not accept hedonism or abuse
Just imagine, the wonderful possibilities.
Randy L. McClave
