World Peace is Easy

© 2018 Steve Cook

World Peace is easy.

It requires only that one cease and desist

From mucking people about

And shoot only those who insist

On lying through their teeth

In the name of conflict.

Keeping the world at war

On the other hand

Requires more relentless effort

Than sane men can contemplate

To negate man's native kinship

With his fellow man.

God forbid that the state of peace

Should break out

In answer to popular demand

And ruin hundreds of

Money lenders, arms dealers

Corporate mass druggers

And similar

Enemies of Man.
