We Do Not Need Super Powers Or Nuclear Weapons - Poem by Francis Duggan

We do not need super powers or nuclear weapons in the World of today
Of a safer Planet to live in these are obstacles in the way
The only World war we do need is a war on poverty
With alms not military domination of the have nots of humanity
Of super powers and nuclear weapons I do not wish to hear
Since 'tis those who have the most power are those whom we ought to fear
What would be best for humanity and I really do mean best
Is a World without super powers and free of nuclear weapons in Countries north, south, east and west
Any talk of super powers and nuclear weapons does not appeal to me
The World does not need them though some with that may not agree
Even in every super power Country of the World on every city street
The hungry and the homeless one is surely bound to meet
We do not need super powers and nuclear weapons we need compassion instead
We need shelter for the homeless and the hungry to be fed.
