Strike The Chord
Poem By Joseph Wilford
Remorse and regret
Anger and sorrow
Bleed out in minor chords
Soldiers fall and mothers weep in A minor
Dirt falls on caskets of the dead in D minor
The glory of Tragedy parades in B minor
Death stalks and grins in E minor
Take me home, I sing
and quietly slip under the waves.
I hear the music.
