Life Blood

Great blood vessels once flowed throughout
And cut across the living world
In streams of full vivacity
Sustaining life ahead

Such rivers surged with heart and soul
Like arteries cross every land
Yet then as veins of human tears
They wept in waters red

And haematoma blocked the flow
As conflict stifled, killed and raped
What had we done?  What do we do?
Usurped the river’s bed

Their courses altered by great wars
Permeated by broken lives
No longer fluid crystal blue
But channels of the dead

Arterial brooks starved of life
Left bleeding cross the world so wide
But now let’s hear the war cries cease
For peace to flow and spread
