Fine Wine

            Fine Wine

             We have bound and gagged the bird
             who would carry the olive branch
             to the heads of state
             guarding vehemently their fragile egos.
             Guarding so that the horrors
             of retaliation would not
             devastate their souls
             for stealing the young sons
             who had no knowledge and no chance.

             Where is the king
             who would avow his peace
             that others would live symbolically
             in love with the dove?

             Now. . . . here is the chance
             and the time where love
             cancels the errors and begs
             unconditionally for forgiveness.
             We've taken what was most cherished
             and crushed to death

             what would have been fine wine.

    How fine the wine would taste if we could accept His love and end all hate and war.

    Lots to think about in your newest piece. Our leaders need to read this.They’re taking God out of our lives.I think they’ll be sorry some day.
