War And Peace

One day; the invalid king, well, he raised his brow,
Sent off the best that he had,
To slow that army down,
Against demons, warlocks, witches, imps,
And beasts of the unknown,
Before the battle began,
It was already carved into stone,--

What stands between war and peace,
Is that love between you and me?--

A psychedelic storm,
Then the moon broke through,
Hail to the Captain!,
Was sung from the crew,
A rumble in the waters,
And, who could that be?,
It was Neptune himself!
Was the last thing they would see,--

What stands between war and peace,
Is this love between you and me?--

Thousands of years come to pass,
From the price we've paid,
What has happened to us all?
No one here would say,-
The life we live now,
You know it's only a game,
Chivalry long gone,
And everyone's to blame,--

What stands between war and peace,
Is there love between you and me?--

Sad to say we will always have war and peace, as good and evil will always exist. From the very begining of human existence. If we situate War-Love-Peace a pull from each side. Yet love will prevail to keep us going. Nice poem. SM
