PEACE – WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?

Why do they say:

“Pro-testors”

with the accent on
the “pro”,
as if the word
is the ugliest
word they know?

All the contradictions
from such a simple word
and a shorter, but
more frightening word
when spoken aloud
and really heard:
War.

You never hear
anyone say:
Peace – What is it good for?

Ought we not to be FOR
peace – [as in “pro”]
and against the need
to fight a war?

Or is there something
that you and I are
not allowed to know?

As for me, I remain
anti
and Pro;

My son is
a soldier
so never say to me
that I’m against the troops
who have to fight a war………

But we must always
ask,
“What for?”
