Army Mom’s Safe Haven

IF ONLY...

If only Mother Earth
could speak
of the atrocities she's seen;
of all her clear streams running red
and fallen men upon her green -
If only she could tell about
the damage that's been done
by politicians ordering
one man to fight a mother's son;
If only Mother Earth could cry
She would be crying still
at the child-like foolishness of Man
and his stubbornness of Will.
