The Side of a Hill...

(now that LJ misbehaviour won't eat this post...)

The Side of A Hill

On the side of a hill, in a land called somewhere
A little boy lies asleep in the earth
While down in the valley a cruel war rages
And people forget what a child's life is worth

On the side of a hill, a little cloud weeps
And waters the grave with its silent tears
While a soldier cleans a polishes a gun
That ended a life at the age of seven years

And the war rages on in a land called somewhere
And generals order their men to kill
And to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten
While a little cloud weeps on the side of a hill

- Paul Simon -
"The Paul Simon Songbook", 1965


War is hell, and we should NOT forget it.
