Peace Keepers?
by ©Richard Budig 1999

They call it a peace keeping force
They always call it that
And itís always afterwards
Ever notice that
After bodies litter the streets
When cradles no longer rock
Long after the cry for help
Thatís when well dressed troops
storm empty beaches
Swoop among the survivors
And say verily put away your fear
For as you see we are finally here

Broker, I'm afraid that's exactly how it goes. Niecly told!

Broker - Sometimes the truth is so hard to tell ... you did it well. I particularly liked 'When cradles no longer rock' ... very visual. Nice job, I think.
