A Better Idea

Rating: 2.7

they want to
ban books, ban abortions
ban gay marriages
ban free thinking
and if they could
ban the poor!

i have a better idea!

why dont we
ban wars, ban prejudice
ban offshore drilling
ban the greedy
ban the judgemental
ban ignorance

and just for good measure
ban whaling around the world
for any reason!

Agreed. Ban the bad and rejoice in the good. There could be so many wonderful things in this world if we just stopped all the war, hate, greed etc.
