A poem by The Psychy Poet
I suppose I now have a mission
With my written thoughts in verse,
For as I scan the worldwide scene
I fear it's all getting worse.
For it seems there are
With the world once
more on the brink.
So great leaders please take care
And give lots of time to think,
Of amazing wonders, good, and values
At new risk from conceited power.
Which can lead to mass destruction
In much less than an hour.
Of course there's been
great wars before
And yet somehow we still survived.
Learning from the mushroom cloud
That insured we have now arrived,
At a state of chilling acceptance
Of just what harm man can do.
But now it seems we must again
Test out if it's all true!
So what use then is my puny verse
That on a world scale's just a jot?
But for me it's hugely important,
To give our opinions than to just not
Do anything or our make a protest,
As generations have done before.
When on monumental occasions
It did bring an end to war.
So I will scribe away my thoughts
To let my feelings be known,
As you won't succeed, if you don't try
Thus I may not stand alone!
