“Blue Meanies”

Aspects of the mind

Confusion as a barrier

The disillusion one man can create

Something in the way he thinks

Decides a question unknown

But the answer is an act of violence

 

Aspects of the heart

Emotions as a sign

The disillusion one man can create

Something in the way she thinks

Acts as a bond of love

Holding on desperately to reality

 

Aspects of the soul

Heaven as a destination

The disillusion one man can create

Something in the way he thought

Helped bring peace and love to a generation

And lets him live eternally

In the hearts and the eyes of the world.

 

Betty, Age 14, January, 1981
