SIXTIES BABY

Baby boy, a soldier’s joy
Daddy’s gone to war
An Asian war went boom…
echoing in this lonely room
Daddy is no more
Baby boy grows to be a man
the best soldier in this land
A desert war goes boom…
just past high noon
soldier boy lost a hand
Mamma cried all night
at this terrible sight
The war still booms…
and echoes in lonely rooms
… It just ain’t right
