Treasure Island

Chris G. Vaillancourt

(April 5,1959 / Canada)

Pray for Peace


Rain falls on the ground. Drizzling water.
Television turned on. Angry rhetoric.
New plans proposed. Armies marching.
Please, please, please,
...................pray for peace.
Skies black with hate. Lazy yelling.
Fish swim back and forth. Danger unaware.
Tribes gather and they scold. Malicious vibes.
Please, please, please,
.....................pray for peace.
Watching children learn. Violence dominates.
Corporations preach and burn. Insipid parasites.
Grass grows in tones of brown. Dying atmosphere.
Please, please, please,
....................pray for peace.
Water runs fast and slow. Strangers shouting.
Trees shade and have no leaves. Corporate hello.
Moon rises naked in the sky. Sun is empty zero.
Please, please, please,
pray for peace.
Churches empty as stores open. Religious tolerance.
Dinosaurs gone but more to come. Media harmony.
Up is downwards and down is up. Confusing immoralities.
Please, please, please,
.................pray for peace.


Please, please, please,
..............pray for peace.
Let peace be on our lips.
Let peace be in our hearts.
Let peace be our only word.
Please, please, please,
...................pray for peace.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
