Sag Tell

Tell us all

where have all our hearts gone

that this could happen

that this could be today

_____________________________

Mir Me

what can any one me say

what can any one me do

shouldn’t we keep our heads down

like during slavery, 1938 Kristallnacht, like-

________________________________________________________

wo where

where were all our Police

our protectors

when our ideals needed protecting

and not some politics

____________________________________

de the

the people there

were not peaceful protestors

it was noncivil disobedience

yet it was allowed

________________________________

Blumen flowers

we were the “flower children”

we thought, we thought-

but we were not angels of destruction

we hadn’t learned that yet

______________________________

Sind are

so who are we now

this country this concept

is there still a place for hope

or is that a yester dream

one of the many songs of Pete Seeger
