"Come February"

Rick Davis

We all knew that it was going to come down

flow down

fall down

around us.

We knew

and no one said a word.

We watched it happen,

let it happen,

helped it happen.

While the spinners spun

their web of deceit

we watched the bombs fall.

It was wrong

and we knew it.


and we said nothing,

did nothing.

In our silence we betrayed ourselves

and each other.

Blinded by the rockets red glare,

deafened by the bombs bursting in air

we let it happen.

We shall be silent no more.

Let us bring our voices together

in a prayer for peace.
