Good Wars

There is a time to fight

In wars that we know are good

That we should go on fighting

Until the wars are won

The war against homelessness

The war against poverty

Are wars that affect us all

The war against sickness

The war against crime

Are wars that we have to fight

All of the bloody time

The war to save the planet

To protect the environment 

To surrender to the doomsayers

It simply makes no sense 

So don’t sit and wonder

What it is that can be done

Take up arms and fight 

You will not be alone

Join the fight and battle on

Until the wars are won
