Hang-Ups

Written for an anti-Viet-Nam war rally September 1962

*************

People dying,

Children crying,

Happiness is just a piece of bread,

Just to be fed.

We can all help in our own way.

Today is Monday.

*************

People dying,

No-one trying

Tanks & guns & fires rage by,

They’ll all die

We can all help in our own way,

Today is Wednesday.

***********

People sighing,

Hypocrites lying,

Red, brown, black, yellow, white…

Is anyone right?

We can all help in our own way,

Today is Friday.

******

Monday is for hunger,

Wednesday is for peace,

Friday is for equality,

Everyday for Justice,

and have hope.

BN – 1962 – Aged 12
