PEACE AND HARMONY

Peace and harmony a restful feat
Peace and harmony with out a hasty retreat.
Many buddies lie dead tonight
Many buddies that lost the fight.

Peace and harmony was their final goal
Peace and harmony for which they sold their soul.
Many foes lie dead tonight
Many foes that lost the very same fight.

Peace and harmony in an unmerciful world
Peace and harmony that will yield to no boy or girl.
A soldier is supposed to risk their all and not cry
Innocent women and children still seem to die

Peace and harmony is a fool’s dream
Peace and harmony isn’t even a lofty theme.
After thirty or forty years seems
All that is left are nighttime screams.
