Frühjahr 2022

Im Frühjahr 2022 nähert sich der Krieg Europa. Millionen Menschen fliehen vor den Bomben.


Universal Soldier, geschrieben in den frühen 60er Jahren von der Kanadierin Buffy Sainte-Marie, weltweit bekannt in der Interpretation von  dem schottischen Volkskünstler Donovan :


He‘s five feet two and he‘s six feet four
He fights with missiles and with spears
He‘s all of 31 and he‘s only 17
He‘s been a soldier for a thousand years
He‘s a Catholic, a Hindu, an atheist, a Jain,
a Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew
and he knows he shouldn‘t kill
and he knows he always will
kill you for me my friend and me for you
And he‘s fighting for Canada,
he‘s fighting for France,
he‘s fighting for the USA,
and he‘s fighting for the Russians
and he‘s fighting for Japan,
and he thinks we‘ll put an end to war this way
And he‘s fighting for Democracy
and fighting for the Reds
He says it‘s for the peace of all
He‘s the one who must decide
who‘s to live and who‘s to die
and he never sees the writing on the walls
He‘s the one who gives his body
as a weapon to a war
and without him all this killing can‘t go on
He‘s the universal soldier
and he really is to blame
His orders come from far away no more
They come from him, and you, and me
and brothers can‘t you see
this is not the way we put an end to war.
