Hearing

I can hear the song in my head,

every night and every day,

people never saying what they mean,

and so we just get

deeper into this

rut of lies and half truths

that kills and mains millions

brings unnecessary hatreds

to boil over into

yet more destruction,

so we have to start

talking truths,

getting to know and trust one another,

smiling in truth, greeting,

exploring friendship and peace,

and hearing what people are really

saying and feeling

for the sake and peace

of all mankind,

wont the soothsayers

banish from our minds

and let us save our world.

This is a poem based on two songs the first being Joe South’s Games people play, which I blogged earlier this evening, and Albert Hammond’s For the peace of Mankind.
