I Cry for You (1973)

I Cry for You 

by Marc Mangel


my friends and my brothers

i worry for you i cry for you

i pray for speedy return in


you are there when cannon sounds

and bullets fly

where death roams unleashed


what are you thinking

of wives and children

of the country you are


thinking through the staccato

of red in the night

you are brave men

you are grave men

what can we tell you or

plead to you

we can only fall on our

faces and scream

thank you


return in peace

October 1973
