The Nobel Prizes - Poem by Francie Lynch

The best irony ever,
Is not that the Prizes
Grew out of dynamite
And cannon fodder,
The greatest irony
Is that no religious founder:
Not Abraham, Jesus, Mohamed
Or any number of Swamis,
Received a posthumous
Peace Prize.
And with good reason.
Religion has never been
A peace broker.
