When the War is Over

When the War is Over

When the war is over
We will be proud of course the air will be
Good for breathing at last
The water will have been improved the salmon
And the silence of heaven
will migrate more perfectly
The dead will think the living are worth it
we will know who we are
And we will all enlist again
