What Is It With Torpedoing Efforts For Peace? (Poem)

They like to make it seem as if there’s just one way.

What Is It With Torpedoing Efforts For Peace?

What is it with these tit-for-tatters,
who would tear the world to tatters?
Let-others-die-hard pipsqueak ratters
who strut about like big-league batters,
but want to strike pre-emptively,
talk “take-out” empty-headedly,
not caring if their bangs rat-tat
give rise to endless big hits back–
But I don’t have the tit for that
(for it’s not my head that carries fat)
and refuse to see more children sent
to hellish war by those hell-bent–

Only let me be little clearer–
there’s no good godly god holds dearer
one side’s missile over one side’s land,
this sand over that other sand–
so, don’t confuse a plan divine
with your bloody idiotic kind– 

*****************************************

Here’s a kind of irritated poem, probably linked belatedly and as a second poem to Real Toads Open Forum.  Thanks.

When you get older, you view everyone else as children.

  1. The tit-for-tat, revenge and retaliation reasoning is making me sick as well.. very clever rhymes that make the seriousness even sicker.. like a nursery rhyme for grown ups.


  2. Not only do I share the sentiment, but also I enjoyed the poem immensely. You should set it to music. It will work wonders. 🙂

    Greetings from London.

    You could jump rope to this–while imagining well-deserved swipes upside various ijits’ heads on each landing. I especially like the last stanza.


  4. Sounds like a rap song. I like it and the sentiments!

    I loved that comment, Karin. How true. So often the global solutions being pedalled around these days are completely infantile.

    And today the new budget. Sigh. ~


I'd love to hear from you!
