In Times Such As Ours.

There is an alternative----

IN TIMES SUCH AS OURS.

In times such as ours,
when honour crowns the sword
more than the humble word,
let the poet be your broker
trading a week's hate
for one precious moment of love,
demand,   lovers songs supplant
the warrior's battle cry,
so hand in hand, lover and poet
lift our spirits high.
In times such as ours,
when greed is a noble cause
and all,   blind to another's loss,
let the child's tear touch your heart,
make care the common currency
giving the normal act;
sharing with open palm
must be the future's key
so all can freely feed
from the fruits on nature's tree.
