WHEN WE WERE YOUNG
(we were very very young)
and we wanted peace in a time of war
everyone was GUNG HO!
against UNCLE HO!
ready to Napalm/Agent Orange
Bomb the beJesus out of Vietnam
One or two were brave in public view
to stand up to the military push
They embraced peace and rationality
Hounded by all who could only see
war as progress.Death took too many youth.
We were grateful then for such as Tom Haydn
We remain grateful for the existence and activism
of so few brave men/standing up for peaceful civilians..
In an age of Wikileaks /Chelsea Manning and exiled Assange
Remember Tom Hayden!
