The peacemaker’s creed

You are a yellow-belly but you sing.

You are a yellow-belly but want love.
You are a yellow-belly and say now.

You stand and say why wait; let us stop now!
Others only kill but you want to sing.
They come to look on you with hate, not love

The stabs start in the night but you give love.
Angry voices squash your pleas for peace now.
They crush your flesh but our spirit will sing

I’m a yellow-belly and sing love now
