Beautiful Dreamers

  ~~~~~ Are you liberal, conservative, radical, stoic, centrist, anarchist, green? You can fill in the blanks I’ve missed. Maybe you want to bring back the Wobblies or worship the sun. What you label yourself is much less important than what you believe. Can you tell me why you believe, what you believe and why […]

Songs of War ~ Songs of Peace

~~~~~ And will the savage songs of war never end, Replaced by simple, sweet songs of peace? How can we, forever, our loved-ones send, Knowing they will feed the slavering beast? Do we wonder why we never grow sane, When the best, the brightest are sent to die? Why choose blood, shed again and again? […]
