Peace - Poem by Millennium Rose

Peace! As easy as your ABC's
But first let me explain
A scene that made a hundred feel
like they were ordained
We took our children numbering nine
to a fancy restaurant to dine
Bustling & scurrying.
Not the children hurrying
As the waiters brought the food
nine small voices rang out clear
Much to their parent's fear Bless us oh! Lord and these thy gifts
Which we are about to receive from Thy Bounty
Through Christ our Lord Amen.
Silence fell on the room like thunder
As one hundred stared in wonder
Then one by one
they also bowed their heads in prayer
Before resuming their meal,
they just had to share
