War zone

War zone

A commotion of crows
           cawing at my window
a call to arms perhaps
           what are you waiting for
get the job done
           we have been patient
as the days and months
           slipped by and the world
remained the same
           this is our world too
we were here before
           you ever set foot
before you ever appeared
           we roamed the fields
and soared in the skies
           when the earth was
a place of harmony
           free from wars
and bitter divisions :
           blessed are
the peacemakers
           if you can find them
