#Poem at night ~ If you do NOT want war….

September 2016

I posted anti-war songs the last two Sundays. That reminded me of a poem I wrote in April 2012. This is the long original version but I’ll post the edited shorter version afterwards.

If you do NOT want war…

If you do NOT want war ~ don’t think war

If you do NOT want war ~ don’t talk war

If you do NOT want war ~ don’t teach war

If you do NOT want war ~ don’t allow war games

If you do NOT want war ~ don’t allow war toys

If you do NOT want war ~ don’t produce war games

if you do NOT want war ~ don’t produce war toys

If you do NOT want war ~ don’t produce weapons

If you do NOT want war ~ don’t train soldiers

If you do NOT want war ~ don’t solve conflicts with war

If you do NOT want war ~ do not do war!

But do you really not want WAR?

And here the edited shorter version:

If you do not want war
If you do NOT want war ~ don’t think war
If you do NOT want war ~ don’t talk war
If you do NOT want war ~ don’t teach war
If you do NOT want war ~ do not do war!
But do you really NOT want war?

I wish it would be that easy. However, maybe it is that easy!

  1. I think, that we need to teach peace first, so people know the difference and are able to choose, Bee. I love the new science, where they teach meditation in schools from early age, so all get a very different kind of life and connection to each other. This is also a good way 🙂
