“When you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldier”

“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”

“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.

“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

“Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God


Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?


Have you always turned the other cheek?


To My Church have you been true?"


"No, Lord, I guess I ain't


Because those of us who carry guns


Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around


Except to calm their fears.


If you've a place for me here,


Lord, It needn't be so grand,


I never expected or had too much,


But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

The Weeping Lady of Kinshasa
Saturday, December 24, 2005
Have You By Chance Spied From Far
The Weeping Lady of Kinshasa
Each Time I Pass Her By
The Inside of Me Cry

Her Pains And Sorrows In Anguish Bared
Anger Engendered, Bolder, Closer, I Stare
Yes, I Am Overwhelmed And Enthralled
Visions of Indelible Horrors Endured

Constant Sentinel At Court Houses
As If To Vent Relentless Grouses
But Courts of Lords Have No Answers
A Nation Wrecked By War-Mongers

Her Vigil Reminding One And All
Her Years of Suffering Without A Cure
You Ask For Whom She Weeps
You, Me, A Whole Nation of Congolese

The Weeping Lady of Kinshasa
Her Beautiful Face Tears Assailed
She Bows Her Head In Shame
And Hide Sobbing She Cannot Tame

Mother Congo She Has Waited Long
So Much She Treasures Has Long Gone
Her Remaining Children She Holds Dear
Never Again Shall They Live In Fear

Like Meandering Great River Congo
Around The Next Bend Is Pot of Gold
Like The Phoenix She Shall Rise Again
No More of Failures, Apportioning Blame

When Deeds Are Done And Calm Returned
Let There Be Built A New Monument
A Joyous Lady Leading By The Hands
Smiling Children To A Future Land

But Let Weeping Lady Remain Standing
Side By Side With Joyous Lady - Bonding
One Reminding of Era Dark And Forbidding
The Other A Future Bright And Promising

Yo, She Kept Her Faith In Her People
On Course She Stayed Their Keeper
Generations Down They Shall Drum
She Symbolizes Our Struggle, Our Triumph
Don Too (I-1298)
