Calm on the Western Front
There's a real need for calm on the Western front.
The battle is over and the anger is spent.
A time for examining what was right or wrong.
Big problems are pressing from the land and the sky.
While we squabble over personality, scandal, money and fame.
We all want more and take more than we need or give.
When big problems appear we ignore them or lie,
In the aftermath of the battle we have to decide,
Do we demean who we think are the lesser of us?
The calm will not last if we continue to bicker,
When they come down upon us even with much warning,
The choice is quite clear and the task is at hand.
