What of the Children?

In honor of National Poetry Month.

I wrote this back in the 80’s when the Cold War was a legitimate threat on a lot of people’s minds, mine included. This was my first poem to get published.


What of the Children?

I am a patriot,

Yes, that’s true,

But if war comes

What would I do?

What of the children,

Their future, their fun?

War could come

With the shot of a gun.

What of the future

If war should burst?

Think of the children,

They come first.
