Eagle And The Dove


It’s a crazy mixed up World today

People fight, kill, push and shove,

There is no ‘Bulldog’ or ‘Great Bear’

Just the ‘Eagle’ and the ‘Dove‘.

I

The ‘Great Bear‘, it has taken a fall

It is ravaged; hurt, in pain,

The ‘Bulldog’ insignificant now,

And perhaps, not heard again.

I

There’s many people who are oppressed

And the ‘Hawk’ screams up above,

They’re under the ever watchful eyes

Of the ‘Eagle’ and the ‘Dove’.

I

Where will this end you may well ask,

All the turmoil of this age

For people, countries torn apart,

And like prisoners in a cage.

I

This Spaceship Earth, this place we live

Has paid its price, time and again

The rape and plunder of our World,

Mother Nature, cries in pain.

I

The young ones now, unenviable task,

Resolve the mess, with hand in glove.

The children of, the World at large

And the ‘Eagle’ with the ‘Dove’.
