Eye On The North












We’re all carrying keys
believing we own the door,
but truth moved just
beyond the alarm.

…Politicians
are digging a fire line
so unity can’t build a bridge.

Peace keeps its eye on the north
hoping sanity will silence hawkish tongues
foolish enough to threaten winter.

Right on, sister. May calmer heads prevail. Loved this, and the Dylan clip.

This is so incredibly potent! The last stanza completely blew me away and is powerful enough to stand on its own. Kudos!💕

Yes...the north...Korea and dc...fools prating and comparing the sizes of their...rockets.

Ahh, the North. always the dreaded North. In this instance, Korea and DC. Just like two little boys arguing over who has the biggest rocket...so to speak. I wish those two little boys would go someplace else to play - like hell.

How cool it would be if we could persuade happiness (and her eye) to move in...
