  • Wary and warned
    Citizen and soldier
    Leave the square

    Ghost grey memories
    Hover in the heart
    Fragile as ash

    Nomads as neighbors
    Simple school yards
    Fast friends and fresh air

    A bayonet flashes
    But this time
    Fear goes begging

    The war is over
    Soldiers become citizens
    The rebellion begins
