War within

the bullets flew

the blood ran

it happens in Paris

it happens in Beirut

it happens in Nairobi

it happens in Gaza

it happens in Jerusalem

it happens in New York

it happens in Port Arthur

men gorge on the lust

of death, a creature

strange to God,

a creature strange to

themselves

it happens in the office

it happens at home

it happens in the ghettos

it happens on the land

it happens in the sea

it happens in our hearts

WAR a fight about

ourselves , our souls

in turmoil , our dance

a crazy cry

give me Thich Nhat Hahn

give me the Ocean of Wisdom

give me Rumi

give me a bird that sings
