After Peace

After Peace

(V Day)

Children were laughing and playing

circles of men and women sang

and instruments sounded out into the atmosphere

all beneath the silver skyscrapers

and the moon shone down on all

as the fire rose and embers spread

 

Wine was passed around with a smile

and a gesture of good will

as houses crumbled and animals fled

Hand in hand and united they sang

over the crackling and hissing

Their joyous faces lit blood orange.
