Soldiers Made of Stone

A bench, a tree
A pond, a stream,
His suit is pressed and cleaned
The pattern’s dated

A dance, a grin
A song, he spins
The man is lost within
Thus he's evaded

We are free now
But we are soldiers made of stone
We’ve eluded the unknown

We're at peace now
But our fields are bricks and bones
We are free and on our own
We are free....

A desk, a chair
A screen, he stares
Pretends he's unaware
Pretends he's sated

He walks on by
No smiles, replies
The man is lost inside
His hope has faded


"Special thanks to the fine gentleman I met one day in Scotland who loved birds and dancing. It was a treat to talk with you." - Joshua Fialkoff
