Little green men (Freedom)

entry picture

Come little green men,

you are needed

to fill our skies and eyes,

take lives and terrorise.


Come little green men,

make us fight you,

shoulder to shoulder with each other,

every human being a brother.


Come little green men,

make us forget

the million walls suspicion builds

the million graves our hate has filled.


Come little green men,

make us truly human

working together for common cause,

no more labels, no more wars.


Come little green men,

attack our freedom

and set us free.

Mmm...VERY interesting in light of our recent discussions.

I especially like these lines:

"make us fight you,
shoulder to shoulder with each other"


"attack our freedom
and set us free"

Thought-provoking for sure

But would we really get together to fight the little green men? Or would we decide that for the common good of the world we could offer them the french if they left the rest of us alone and went on their never knows...

But which are better? Loaves or little green men? Only one way to find out! ;-)

P.S. The little green men look sad!
