Anti war statement dedicated to all the brave service men and women serving and dying in our time.

"You provide the pictures. I'll provide the war."

-William Randolf Hearst-

    Babylonian Misadventure      

            Duplicity abounds friend now foe

             Friend in carnage foe we control

           Control information they will agree

        Mothers play well honor them with a flag

     A star for their window for each lifeless child

         Never mind purpose never mind a goal

         21 years we earned with no end before

           They'll provide sons and daughters

       Cast a net on the poor trapped disparing

              Fish the ghettos slums and barrios

                      Cast your nets proudly 

          Shine buckels epplets silvery swords

                         Stand tall and straight  

       Speak of freedom honor doing your part

                          Sing them a song

         When Johnny Comes Marching Home

          Don't use real lyrics they won't come

         If he hasn't an arm and he hasn't a leg

                       There will be no profit  

                           Hold your tongue

  They Will  Come  - Succumb - Speak As One

Reviewed by E T Waldron
Very fitting for the perils of war, and the sad ways it seems to always end up, even when neccessary!
