Recipe For Peace: Reality Check Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

The Question:

Would you fight for
your country?
If there was a war?

The Answer:

No I wouldn’t fight.

The Retort:

What sort of an attitude is that?
What would happen if everyone
had an attitude like that?

The Reply:

There would be no wars.

Emotional Overload: Body Language:

Controlled Breathing Pause Extending Indefinitely.
Mounting Anger of Suppressed Rage.
Reason verses Conflicted Emotions! Pause extending.

The Outburst: An admission:

But not everyone thinks like that!

Reasoned Response:

Yes. But if they did there would be no wars.

The Solution:

Silence. A simple recipe.
For true world peace.
There would be no wars.
