She borders the pavement
The parades pass

Lift a banner

Chats at their doors
Econosize electric appliances
And a seat by my

Three years each tour
Prayed mother of the war
Beg a postman
For mother the war
5 black stars
In bitter defiance
Wet a brood

With sorrow

Carrion and
Folded lace
Blood soaked
