Politics of Peace

16 days and counting up
silent the guns of war
between Israel and Lebanon
loud the hawks of fear

Freedom Fries re-morph
into French Fries by
any other name – the same
we are all birds in the feather

Peace, like Love,
is a verb not a noun
chiseled stones do not reflect rock
ties do not reflect a soul*

got bums? throw ’em out
70 days and counting down…
