No Turning Back a Lyric by John Eagle

Ain’t No Turning Back

Well I took Susie all the way
An that’s a cold hard fact
She said you got to marry me
And there ain’t no turning back

Ain’t no turning back Lord
Ain’t no turning back
I did it that’s a fact
Ain’t no turning back

Now her daddy is a preacher man
He’s standing by her side
I’m staring down the barrel
Next to my blushing bride

Ain’t no turning back Lord
Ain’t no turning back
I did it that’s a fact
Ain’t no turning back

Instrumental interlude

Now im sitting in this jail cell
Got life at twenty three
They say i killed her daddy
Nobody pulls a gun on me

Ain’t no turning back Lord
Ain’t no turning back
I did it that’s a fact
Ain’t no turning back

Now the moral of the story
The reason for this song
Don’t sew your wild oats
Where you don’t belong

Ain’t no turning back Lord
Ain’t no turning back
I did it that’s a fact
Ain’t no turning back

The Poem That Ended War

poem that ended war

He writes a poem when he needs one

and sometimes they go here

or                    over                     here

and sometime they hang

there

like they might say something important in a line of thought

but always this word<-  or that -> word

leads

somewhere else, but it doesn’t matter.

Even matter doesn’t matter.

In a parallel universe this poem ended war.

In this universe

war is hell

and this is just a poem

wishing

like all of the other poems

for

peace.
