Call to Arms

An idea needed defended
So young men and women died
Communism, Islam, Democracy were silent
But plenty of families cried.

An idea needed saving
So countless lives we give
Economics, Religion, Politics are more important
Than the lives we have to live.

To kill for one’s ideas is wrong.
To kill and die for another’s, insane.
Communism, Islam, Democracy—
Nothing more than names.
