    yeah, that’s beautiful.
    Sometimes things don’t go, after all,
    from bad to worse. Some years, muscadel
    faces down frost; green thrives; the crops don’t fail.
    Sometimes a man aims high, and all goes well.

    A people sometimes will step back from war,
    elect an honest man, decide they care
    enough, that they can’t leave some stranger poor.
    Some men become what they were born for.

    Sometimes our best intentions do not go
    amiss; sometimes we do as we meant to.
    The sun will sometimes melt a field of sorrow
    that seemed hard frozen; may it happen for you.

    considering the way some ‘beautiful people’ behave in public… I’m guessing they like the perpetuation of war… keeps them rich and beautiful… doesn’t matter if they don’t ‘get’ it… sheep for those men I was talking about earlier Mick… those ‘brethren’… I could tell you some freaky ghost stories… but it’s too much to type unfortunately…

    all war is fruitless. No one wins.

    the bloodless ghouls of the war industry, like Darth Cheney, are the only winners, mick.
