Newborn babies still cry
while Poets and Philosophers ask the eternal question-why?
Politicians to us still lie
while starry eyed lovers gaze at each other and sigh
605 people year to date here are dead
that's what the Channel 7 Reporter said
More folks like lambs to the slaughter will be led
to keep the "Legion" fed
I pray for an invention from the divine
because here in Chicago it's-"Life During War Time"
*Kudos and Credit to the Talking Heads
and their song "Life During War Time"
for the title and inspiration of this poem.
