20th Century Baby

20th  Century Baby

20th century baby
Conceived and born
In War

Millions of your
Brothers killed
While you were just
A boy

For not until you
Came to life

That war became so real
For men talked not
In terms of life 
They talked of

They went from 
Stick and Stones
And broke many bones
From arrows 
And the gun

So by the time
You were born

They had moved
To the Bomb
But you're not to blame

Oh child of Space

You're just an actor
A stage
And when the bullets
Of War pierce
Your heart
Another page
