 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.

C’est La Vie
(such is life…)
Everyone can see it coming…
The engines roar is closer
But all just wait to see the target get destroyed
It matters not who’s aiming
It matters not the reason
Soon will come the bang… and then the void.
The screams will echo loudest
The cries will cease and die
When the dust has settled the world will get to see
How the people holding power
Go home and take a shower
Then hide behind the phrase of c’est la vie.
This situation they created
We all believed their truth
And sadly sent our heroes into war
Now that engines getting closer
And all they lived and died for
Is scattered into pieces on the floor.
