Poem – ” Why War “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “ 

 

WHY WAR?

Why expect war?

why build weapons

why be # 1

in weapons sold

because of the gold?

We need a new plan-

a worldwide fan

that sweeps this globe,

Why not expect peace?

why not export peace

or we can lease-

peace

using monetary grease.

Expect peace( not war)
