October 13, 1986


those who hold the storm clouds back

why do they take this task

the saving of a race

so surely doomed to die

can this be done by man


the storm winds blow

longer than today

friendships die

promises end

when the handshake is forgotten

too soon the axe may fall


can man deny

the hand of God


its faith will be its doom

ending all thats known

separate paths someday converge

continue and will not change

ideologies clash in flame


prophets of a way

their own destruction bring

man will fall

while angels sing

the end of all thats known



On the cover of “Time” this week was a drawing

of two men, pushing aside darkened clouds of war.
