Bring It On

It’s Quadrille Monday again at the dVerse Poets Pub; time to create a 44-word poem. This week, we’re asked to create a poem using the word “Stone” or some form thereof. 

Thanks to De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo) for hosting and getting us started.

Bring It On

I guess, if given the choice,
I’d prefer words to warfare

sticks to stones
bullets to bombs
knives to arrows
fists to middle fingers

anything that brings
combatants closer together,
lets them see the damage done.

Or maybe just pipe in some Peace Gas.

    • Agreed. It’s definitely more about profit and power than it is about age, as you noted above. I think that there’s a much higher percentage of peacelovers in my (semi-ancient) age bracket than among many others.

  1. I’m with Judy. Put all the old, rich, plutocratic and other warmongers (and profiteers) in a room together and let them fight it out to the death. No body guards or private armies allowed. How many seconds before they all sudden decide that war wasn’t really necessary after all?

  2. Modern warfare with drones and AIs is increasingly indistinguishable from a video game to those holding the controls. I think your point about needing to see the damage is really important.
