Jude Ogunade Poems
Why wars in our world?
When would we stop wars?
Where is another word for war?
What would end wars in our world?
When would the wicked ones
Stop winning us to war?
When would we stop weeping from wars?
When we can weigh our word
And with wisdom mend our fences
When we can weigh our chances
And with wisdom weaken our warful utterances
And in a warm way win with words
Why wars in our own world?
When would we put out the fire of wars?
Where are our generals for peace
Who will with wisdom make war cease?
What will make our wise ones ...
Let there be peace in the world.
Let us all see peace and not war.
Let us all have peace in the world.
Let all our statesmen know no violence,
Let all love peace with warm vehemence,
Let all be clothed with passionate patience,
Let all respect peace with real reverence.
Let peace pervade every political terrain,
Let peace calm the spirits of every domain,
