Violence Unholy Violence
Valued lives in Violence taken,
voice of Conscience coldly forsaken,
instruments of Death and Destruction,
Bombs and Bullets and Drugs and Knives…
Inspect the Building of Deadly Force,
the tragic Physics of Anger and Fear,
the Chemistry of Insatiable Greed,
the Killing Virus of Extremist Hate…
See the dramas that we create,
crediting ‘God’ or blaming ‘Fate’.
Watch families and nations torn apart
until Love Becomes Law in Every Heart.
