“Where have all the flowers gone? When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?” -Pete Seeger
We may never learn, though the seas rise
The rivers flood, the gardens perish
And the bees disappear, we may never learn.
Though the stones we throw hurt more and more,
Though the hospitals overflow
Though parents weep for their children, we may never learn.
Though the streets stain red, though lies deceive,
Though love still seeks the wise. But because it does, I believe,
That the flowers will return. Perhaps, after we have all gone.
