November 1977

 

The Forgotten

 

Peace

And quiet

Like a blanket

Lie over the country

That is slowly waking up

To remember

 

Peace

Is shattered

When a gunshot

Sounds in the silence

In a final salute

For the forgotten

 

Peace

Now returns

And havoc wreaked

In fits of anger

Is now reserved by us

For them
