Bring The Boys Home: Peace Song for 3/7/2012

Bring The Boys Home, by Freda Payne, is the Peace Song of the Day for March 7th.

Excerpt from lyrics: “You marched them away — yes, you did — on ships and planes…to the senseless war, facing death in vain…”

In the old days, when people used the rhetorical “you” (as in the lines above), or “they” (such as “They are not fair”), critics would ask “Who are you talking about?” Now, we can articulate it. The bad “they” in our pacifist tirades, and the “you” in angry antiwar songs, are “The 1%”.

War is for the 1%. (Find a bumper sticker proclaiming that truth: here.)


The Peace Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
