Mother of the Iron Cross

Mother’s everywhere
feel her weight.
The dead weight
of a thousand crosses
pinning her down
to this position.
Never mind her
conviction
that the war
must end soon,
never mind the fact
that her son has fallen.
Find the strength
to fill her ambition
and end the stalemated war.
Stop filling coffins
on both sides,
stop and sort out the truth.
Feel the places
where the war is taking place
and help them shape
their own destiny.
Help them as
brothers and sisters,
help them as denizens of earth.
Help them for all the fallen.
Help them earn what is right.
Feel the people with you now,
say your speech
for all your worth
and know that they didn’t die
for nothing
or worse.
