(Sung to Neil Young’s “Cowgirl in the Sand”)
To an Unfeeling Landmine
So Sorry Neil
This spontaneous post is a follow up to the frivolous one below
Hello Minefield in the Sand
Is this place at your command?
Can I live here just a while?
Can I pass your sweet, sweet style?
Not old enuff now to change my ways
When so many died here
Is this your plan?
It’s the problem with you
That makes me wanna go insane
So many innocent doan wanna play yer game
Hello dead one in the dust
You died because of us
Your band did not begin to rust
I guess it was all the sin I had
To trust a walk that didn’t seem bad
Holding out now, to change some things
Just some water; do that seem strange?
I was hoping that you’d turn bad
Go away now, I’d be not sad
But you hang around…
To kill my kids
You make me feel angry, but not like this
Purple blood on a sand background
With so much about you,
You’ll never be found…
Until you kill someone else.
Too many people die still today from landmines meant to kill combatants in so many older, forgotten wars.
