Seasoned Beyond Reason
Time has not erased the folly of Man. We are as we were from the beginning of time.
We have learned nothing from the history of our forefathers. We continue to stumble
and we continue fight wars as we are destined. It is our nature to do so.
As Vietnam Vets we have fought with honor, We were ridiculed by our own
people, and we were let down by our own nation. We have taught the world that
there is no glory in war, Yet history continues to repeat itself. After all,
WE are The Brothers and Sisters of Cain and Able.
"A TIME FOR PEACE"
" Seasoned Beyond reason "
Aged to imperfection
Senses dulled and eyes slightly dimmed
Mirrors of the mind still cast reflections
Time has shelved histories books
The ravages of war bear no more pain
Children talk of Pokemon
The worlds future wrapped up in games
Television has taught our youth to kill
but without pain or consequence
Politicians have the best of both worlds
They are experts at straddling the fence
Do unto others as you would have done unto you
causes one to live in a fools paradise
It's the ME generation steeped in de-generation
Black and White still cannot be spliced
Simple words seldom regain simple truths
Hidden mystery in the begot, begotten and the begats
Hard to make heads or tails of anything Holy
from all those Genesis stats
We can talk of world treaties and short terms of peace,
feeding the hungry and clothing the poor
But money still talks and poverty still walks
upon our own American shores
Peace and love, honor, pride and trust
Five common cards laid upon life's table
Yet no matter how hard we try to deny the lies
We are still the Brothers and Sisters of Cain and Able
As I said,
We are aged to imperfection!
