Elusive peace

WHEREVER did it go, wherever can it be,

What happened to the peace that they promised me?

Every day a massacre, everywhere a war,

The peace that we were promised I can�t find anymore.

Tell me what�s the reason, tell me who�s to blame,

Every time the wars will end, they start up just again.

Will there ever be a day when man can live in peace,

And children walk in safety down the city streets.

When the sound of laughter rings from every home in town,

Please wake me when it happens if I�m still around.

WILLIAM HIGGINSON,

Baldivis.
