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

    This is a wonderful limerick, precise. Liked it.10/10.
    As long as military arsenals and hardware continues to grow, wars simply won't go away!

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
