If We Fought Wars Like Children Do - Poem by Not Long Left

if we all fought wars like children do,
no one would die,
if we all hated the way children hate,
we would be the best of friends,
in no time,
if we could,
we would
woudn't we,
living life in innocent purity,
if we loved each other like children do,
regardless of colour, age, or gender,
there would be no need for divorce,
if we had tantrums like those of a child,
we would not have to act so evil and wild,
just stamp our feet, run around,
and throw ourself on the ground,
if we could.
we would
wouldn't we.
if we could wee in a nappy,
how much easier would it be,
if we could put every pain aside,
and just thinkl about choclate,
we would woudn't we,
bieng a child is sweet and easy,
but not much would ever get done
