Let’s All Sing

I say this: we have wars
because we have armies,
not the other way round.

The war will not be over
until we all turn ourselves
into the fat lady singing
 All You Need Is Love
or Give Peace A Chance
or even, hell, I don’t know
any old song; but not some
deadly National Anthem

Something hopeful, though,
like The Itsy Bitsy Spider
climbing back up that spout
prevailing after all that rain
