Could You be more tender
Could You be more scarce
Could You loosen your noose around all our throats
It is You I see and hear everywhere
Always standing ready for anyone anywhere
Stalking close behind everything for which people care
You linger with the pungent vagrant standing in the ally
You cause so many to avoid that which may cause them pain
Standing among the mob You have caused that for which they rally
The quickened pulse when looking down from too high
The reason some grit their teeth when trapped in a crowd
The cause for which many hesitate to say the word goodbye
Some have only You when they think they will find no one to love
Some thank You for the reason they refuse to burn a candle
Some drive the long road rather than travel with You high above
I have seen You cuase screaming at the crack of lightening
I have seen You in eyes when the phone rings late at night
I have seen You cause so much stupidity when one thinks of aging
Could You stop causing men to go to war
Could You stop making children cry
Could You stop making parents tired and sore
Could you leave me in peace
Could you let me stop looking over my shoulder
Could your name not be what always comes first
