Peace in our time

NaPoWriMo Notebook

Give peace, O Lord! in our days, Hallelujah

As voices carry over sea and land

Sounding alarms that horrify

This virus is at our command


Fear and hate swirling like sand

Festering loathing in every mind’s eye

As voices carry over sea and land

And, when you are offered hate’s slight of hand

Yes, you have suffered, and so have I …

This virus is at our command

If you still need to make a stand

Lift your prayer of peace on high

As voices carry over sea and land

Forgive and let peace be your lampstand

Breathe and let bygones pass as sighs

This virus is at our command

Spread and sown from hand to hand

Then you will see the lies that vilify

As voices carry over sea and land

This virus is at our command
