SHARE AN UMBRELLA

It’s a rainy day inside
without no place to hide
PRO WAR ANTI WAR
A blue bird gets all choked up
bridges fallen down

When it is time to share an umbrella
Will We?
Would We?
Could We?

I sure do hope so.

By Roger Harkness
March 2003

I wrote this after the Iraq war started. I never supported the war. I was strongly against the war before it started.
After the war started, being a veteran, I strongly believed we had to support the president in a time of war and I
tried to make those who would protest understand.

After Bush declared victory on the air craft carrier, well then I began to ask that our soldiers come home and then
I slowly became a peace protester myself.
