A Sombre Song

In Hope for those who stayed behind the iron curtain, from Hanoi to Havana,
            and dedicated to the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people

Buddha once said, "Life is an ocean of pain." 

My Viet Vet papa-san agreed, "War is Hell, son."

Dad, you went through hell to bring home peace;

I once was a child of war, I know.

There is another name for this suffering world,

It's called Communism.
