Four Years at Forbes and Braddock

For four years, we’ve been standing, standing
   at Forbes and Braddock, every Saturday, Noon to 1.
Honk for peace!
   Otherwise it's quiet.  No chanting, no singing.
The honks are louder now. more insistent,
   pissed off.
Who’s in charge of this demo?  Code Pink, I guess.

Bush says he’ll 'Stay the course.' 
   He’s sending more troops.
Maybe they’ll be there 
   when his term ends in '08 – two more years.
So we'll stand,
   whatever the  weather.

Does it do any good?

At least we’ll have an answer,
   when a grandchild asks,
What did you do 
   During the war in Iraq?
