Peace News from 2011/1966

American Eagle beating its wings over Asia
million dollar helicopters
a billion dollars worth of Marines
who loved Aunt Betty
Drawn from the shores and farms shaking
from high schools to the landing barge
blowing the air through their cheeks with fear
in Life on Television
Put it this way on the radio,
Put it this way in television language
Use the words
language, language;
"a bad guess"

Found in Oxfam Books and Music.
Published in 1966 by Peace News, still resisting war and violence from Caledonian Road, N1.
