Poem of Peace ~ an original work by Dave Lucas


Dave Lucas ~ Poem of Peace

i dream of tranquil skies
and coming summer nights

without the drone of aircraft
without the hissing noises of war

without slipping on shell casings
or tripping over scattered body parts

when we can move through the night
unstopped as we approach any destination

my dream of calm realized
as we gather with friends downtown

Watching people walking hand in hand
as they go from shop to shop

i plan to educate and organize
and log on to skype with comrades

unimpeded by the government brother
who watches me with unblinking eyes

arrange, i say, your lives accordingly,
for the white boats which are coming
as surely as i lie here in the ditch

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
