Read and think of every single line.
I want to plead to you all with these lines
Would you all be able to take in all these rhymes?
Though I'm smothered with personification
And I gathered metaphors & alliteration.
What am I without my maker?
Who's a servant without his master?
I hope in the rain we can see the clouds
And when it snows we would see the sun
If you cause your neighbour pain
Hope you don't feel no joy
Cause emotions are not toys
We all sometimes get in the boxing ring
But when punches start to swing
We ask who put us in there?
Cause we are consumed with terror & fear;
Mobster Al Capone said he killed no-one
But his orders dropped dead more than sixty-one
People like him killed for the thrill
Not thinking how the creator might feel
Everyday from sky news, 37 dead in Iraq, 22 bombed in Afghanistan is all we get
More doom and gloom is all they get,
Would they be any green shoots?
when would the soldier in green quit letting off his shoots?
There say war is peace
did they have to go to war
to make peace?
This paradox is proud yet
literally lethal and also
callously catastrophic to war victims.
God is number 1 spot
Can poet ivy contain the number 2 spot?
Let's be as graceful as a ballet dancer
Let's be as grateful as a tipped valet parker
Let's be as sharp in precision and speed as Ali
Just cease to be callous
And cause your neighbour no loss,
Don't go in to kill for a thrill,
Think of how the creator would feel;
Reflect richer, don't make poor choices,
Cause your neighbour no losses,
I'm hoping you will understand
Oh, I'm hoping you should understand.
