I grew up in a military family and joined the Air Force in 1971 during the Vietnam War. It was there that I became a peace activist.

They Want It All

Military madness
wants it all
Pentagon complaining
'ain't got enough'

Nuclear subs
going to cost
17% more
12 new ones
(why you say?)
going to cost $92 billion

$$$ is extracted
from the hides
of the people

be sure
that collapsing
won't get funded
nor the unraveling
web of
human life

War is a sickness
a sign of the
dark and broken

Cleanse my heart
heal my soul
douse my fire
and rage
in the healing
waters of justice
and true peace

Oh great spirit
please give me
to keep
bearing witness
to my own
and to the
of us all

let us retreat
into the arms
of our trembling
mother earth
