~ " ...turns out my newest writing is a 'Protest Song' for 2017, but with today's sound & energy. Some may call it angst, but I find a really powerful combination- singing of/ with shared frustration about our humankind future, fueling action to find solutions, in direct contact with & thru us, affecting our thinking & mindset, maybe even speed up slow moving bureaucracy instead of more violent action. Aren't our children worth it?" LS

Towers of alabaster risen from the east
innocent, alluring, called us to the feast
but bottom line & power are all that still
remain of this beast

Fires of burnt sienna smolder in the west
twisters getting stronger, greenhouse turning red
I'm praying for our future humanity
ready for this test

Is there some peaceful way to fix this
without more blood?
We need a peaceful way to change this
before the flood.

I've searched my life for beauty
both outside & in your eyes
I've polished faith so freely
my mind is all blue skies
but thinking 'bout the children, I question
Where lies the great disguise?
