I want to write a feelgood poem… of daisies and daffodils,
but inside it’s trench warfare and mustard gas…
…the enemy gains ground.
Where goes my peace?
Is it found in the fight?
To keep upon the path of light…
…meant to be so hard?
So finally, as best I can, I give in. Raise up the white flag,
… let daisies and daffodils bloom.
