We Would Live 4 U

The deliberately elusive Prince

has kicked off
his one-stop "Rally 4 Peace" tour

at the Royal Farms Arena
in Baltimore

with his new song
aptly titled "Baltimore."

His message is one
that mothers
and fathers

and just humans in general
and probably other species

have tried to rationalize

that "Nobody got in nobody's way
so I guess you could say
it was a good day"

but with the nagging feeling underneath
that "Peace is more
than the absence of war."

Still Fox News
will point out
that the line

"Let's take all
the guns away"

means he's lobbying
for Hillary

and maybe
that's only part of the solution

but then again
they've never claimed

to be part
of the solution.
