The Times They Are A-Changin' - Bob Dylan (for me a great poet)

Come gather round people
wherever you roam
and admit that the waters
around you have grown
and accept it that soon
you'll be drenched to the bone
if your time to you
is worth saving
then you'd better start swimming
or you'll sink like a stone
for the times they are a-changin'
come writers and critics
who prophecie with your pen
and keep your eyes wide
the chance won't come again
and don't speak too soon
for the wheel's still in spin
and there's no telling who
that it's naming
for the loser now
will be later to win
for the times they are a-changin'
come senators congressmen
please heed the call
don't stand in the doorway
don't block up the hall
for he that gets hurt
will be he who has stalled
there's a battle
outside raging
it'll soon shake your windows
and rattle your walls
for the times they are a-changin'
come mothers and fathers
throughout the land
and don't criticize
what you can't understand
your sons and your daughters
are beyond your command
your old road
is rapidly aging
please get out of the new one
if you can't lend your hand
for the times they are a-changin'
the line it is drawn
the curse it is cast
the slow one now
will later be fast
as the present now
will later be past
the order is rapidly
and the first one now
will later be last
for the times they are a-changin'

I guess the lyrics of a song count as a poem. Great shot

Through the innocence of a child....

Peace and harmony overcome the brutality of a hostile world.....

Offering a much needed respite from the mayhem.

Wow. This is disturbing. Not only with a gun pointed at a child, but with another child's hands on the trigger. I applaud your photo, but I could never set up a photo shoot and ask one kid to point a gun at another kid. I imagine you'll get one hell of a response on this one.

10 from me for pushing the boundaries and doing it with very competent photography and processing.
