Drum Beats In The Distance

Drum Beats In The Distance

Drum Beats In The Distance
their echo in my mind verify their existence

Like a runner’s pulse rate they quicken
suddenly my heart with fear is stricken

Because I see the hand writing on the wall
and in the past this as meant bodies will fall

These love notes from hell before
have been the precursor to war

Young people sent off to die
sometimes all due to a lie

Innocent Mothers and Babies are too often killed
their life’s missions left unfulfilled

Love ones left to deal with the loss
all because Satan wants to be the Boss
