Silence by James F. Higg

Silence by James F. Higgins

 

    A meeting held.. just yesterday ..,
       the subject.. old as time
     To stay.. to see the homeland change ..,
       or leave it all behind
     Debate.. well it got heated ..,
       emotions.. ran so hot
     Heads were bobbing to.. and fro ..,
       and bodies jumped.. a lot
     In the end.. came silence ..,
       which will last.. I fear too long
     Waking the next morning ..,
       absent was there sweet song
     A meeting held.. just yesterday ..,
       the subject.. old as time
     To stay.. and watch the homeland change ..,
       or leave it all behind
