End It Now

Steve Pearson Poetry

The world watches
while blood is drawn,
while slaughter pervades their TV,
I see it myself,
I watch it myself,
come consume futile death with me.
What will we do?
What can be done?
Can the world abrogate their vile wars?
Where are they,
the “leaders of men”,
while children’s blood washes up on their shore?
They spout words
of freshly bagged piety
and then return to their cloistered domain.
Guess it’s us then,
we’re the voice of the just,
we’re the drivers for peace once again.
Shout out loud
that enough is enough,
shout, end it now, end it now, end it now!
Join the call
and our voices will ring,
cry, end it now, end it now, end it now!
