"Rhythm and Blues"

“Rhythm and Blues”

Little drummers playing the beat’s in my head,
and all of those voices are screaming in silence.

What’s this life and where is my army?
The children and toys,
mothers with boys,
the things we kill to protect.

These “men” with guns,
“nations” with armies
“religions” with gods,
the “rich” with money.

every one of them fighting for peace,
killing for the right to live,
the right to do what they want,
to be told what to do.

Killing soldiers trained to follow orders.
Killing Warriors trained to kill.
Killing boys trained to act like men.
Killing Men trained to kill to protect.

Little drummers playing the beat’s in my head,
and all of those voices are screaming in silence.
