Poetry Challenge #7 23/12/2012

And so this is the end to my years challenge of producing a poem about war every Sunday. To share it , to explain what it means to me. It has not been easy. Anyway this week I have chosen a song/ poem that is set after the war to end all wars, the big one we have not fought yet.

What happens after the big one when the survivors all emerge from their bunkers. All our sons and daughters what will they have left?

When we arrive
Sons & daughters
We’ll make our homes on the water
We’ll build our walls aluminum
We’ll fill our mouths with cinnamon now

These currents pull us ‘cross the border
Steady your boats
Arms to shoulder
’till tides will pull
our hull aground
Making this cold harbour now home

Take up your arm
Sons and daughters
We will arise from the bunkers
By land, by sea, by dirigible
We’ll leave our tracks untraceable now

When we arrive
Sons and daughters
We’ll make our homes on the water
We’ll build our walls aluminum
We’ll fill our mouths with cinnamon now
(We’ll fill our mouths with cinnamon now)

When we arrive
Sons and daughters
We’ll make our homes on the water
We’ll build our walls aluminum
(Sons and daughters)
We’ll fill our mouths with cinnamon
(We’ll make our homes on the water)
We’ll make our homes on the water
(When we build our walls of aluminum)
(We’ll fill our mouths with cinnamon)

Hear all the bombs fade away………………………….
