Should I write a poem about the bad things in life, a mugger’s weapon or a surgeon’s knife?
A knife may be used for good or ill, to cure or kill.
Dirt is misplaced matter, eat the wrong food and get fatter.
Uranium makes a bomb or an x-ray, kill or cure children while they play.
I hate the word nice, nice is fake good, I should take my advice.
Superstition is not good, touch wood.
Does a gun serve any useful purpose except as a paper weight?
Skaters skate a figure of eight.
Self defence it was decided in the year four hundred is alright.
Make a preemptive strike, goodnight.
I am not quite so sure.
May peace and love endure.
