A Balance Of Power Game! Poem by Ramesh T A

A Balance Of Power Game!

Rating: 4.6


Stock piling of weapons has triggered Arms race!
Arms race is going on since the end of World War II.
In the Cold war period it went on between USA & USSR;
Now the game of balance of power goes between nations!

To maintain relative security balance of power goes on!
Now fed up with wars and futility everywhere peace attracts
And talk of peace between warring nations go on as usual.
Without peace of mind no peace of world can be created!

Nuclear non proliferation treaty is all talk without respect;
For, no reduction of Nuclear weapons has started yet!
Here example is better than precept holds good for all;
Preaching by practice can show some progress it seems!

World peace depends on promotion of nonviolence in mind
To contain the warring nature first before making it a reality!

During the Cuban missile crisis, a book had saved the world from WWIII. Had JFK not heeded the wisdom in that book, I may not be writing this now.
