Peace Cause May Be A Lost Cause..... [Just What The Title Says; VERY SHORT; Limerick]


A professor spoke on peace tonight.
Good for her, but I think she’s lost sight.....
that war won’t go away,
as hard as one might pray,
if somewhere exists military might.

    that war won’t go away,
    as hard as one might pray,
    if somewhere exists a pic where bri eats his pizza
