Ominous Peace Brought to the Door

bring on kindness
bring on wishes
of extraordinary days
of greater truths
bring on upturned
corners of mouths
bring on hands, faces
reaching skyward
bring on ideals
beheld within ideas
stated, dashed off
brought to ears, hearts
brought to action!
as spirited, huddled masses
standing at the gates of war
bruised, battered, demoralized
bearing their casualties
they, for you, for me
offer up the greatest, gift
so in tranquil silence
engaged lives
go about, unfettered
